Rosewood is one of the most beautiful woods in my opinion. When used well, it has beautiful flame patterns and an amazing dark reddish-brown color. This petite four drawer dresser is in Fine condition for a piece of furniture that is 60+ years old. The grain is exceptional, with beautiful flame details. The top drawer has a brass lock and key. All the drawers dovetailed in the corners and tongue and groove along the backs.

Unfortunately rosewood is now listed on the endangered species tree list. What does this mean? Not all rose species of rosewood can be harvested anymore. This makes rosewood furniture rare and valuable.

On 1stdibs.com, there isn't a rosewood dresser listed for less than $2500.
