Peasant Provincial line – by Drexel

Readers still looking for major furniture sets like dining rooms and bedrooms should remember to keep your eyes – and heart – open for traditional furniture from the postwar era. This stuff is far less “popular” today than “modern” sets — but how can you linger over the lines of this 1955 Drexel Peasant Provincial and not agree how beautiful it truly is? I love the stain on this wood as well. And – you will be able to buy it for a song! (eBay photos – listing come and gone.)

If you have a Cape or colonial-ranch, all the more reason to consider traditional-style furniture, which is sympathetic to the lines of your home.  With this particular set, I see a tone-on-tone small print wallpaper by Thibaut to go-with. But, you can take this set any number of directions – it is very versatile.

    I am trying to find leaves for a dining table that is a Drexel Peasant Provincial, 42″ wide………I wonder if you would sell any or all of the leaves to this set…..I have my fingers crossed. Thanks, Mary

    I have this exact same set, though mine says it is 1954. WOuld you feel comfortable sharing with my how much you were able to sell it for? Even a ballpark would be helpful. Thanks!

    Oh. My Stars! I hope it is NEVER painted! This quality furniture is not made anymore!!!! This furniture is GORGEOUS! IF, it doesn’t suit you sell it to a WOOD LOVER!
    THERE IS SOME EPIDEMIC OF PAINTING BEAUTIFUL FURNITURE GOING AROUND… IN A FEW YEARS, WHEN THE COLOR OR FAD IS FINALLY OVER, WHAT A JOB AHEAD…. BUT NEVER WILL THAT BEAUTY BE RESTORED!
