Record Type: concept
dressers (cupboards) (cupboards (case furniture), case furniture, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Refers to case furniture similar to sideboard or buffet and used for dressing food and for storing and displaying dishes, fine tableware, and eating and serving utensils. The dresser was used in England beginning in the Tudor period, when it developed as a side table that was often fitted with a row of drawers. In the late 17th century, a dresser typically included a low backboard and narrow shelves or drawers, sometimes used to display valuable dishes. Dressers of this type were very popular in the 19th century. In France and Germany, dressers were more elaborately carved, and often included a cupboard, with or without doors, and a pot board below. In America, the term "dresser (chest of drawers)" refers to a piece of bedroom furniture that is similar in form to the European "dresser (cupboard)."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar een dressoir of buffet voor het bereiden van voedsel en het uitstallen van borden, fijn tafelgerei en eet- en drinkgerei. In Engeland was de keukenkast in gebruik sinds de Tudorperiode, waar hij zich ontwikkelde uit een zijtafel met een rij laden. Aan het einde van de 17de eeuw omvatte de keukenkast meestal ook een lage achterplank en smalle schappen of laden, welke soms dienden voor het uitstallen van waardevolle borden. Keukenkasten van dit type waren in de 19de eeuw zeer geliefd. Franse en Engelse keukenkasten waren rijker bewerkt, en bestonden vaak uit een wandkast (met of zonder deuren) met daaronder een pottenkast.
