Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar lage ladekasten met daarop een spiegel die doorgaans in slaap- of kleedkamers worden gebruikt voor de uiterlijke verzorging en om kledingstukken en toiletartikelen in op te bergen. In deze context wordt de term vooral gebruikt in de Verenigde Staten, en de Engelse term 'dresser' is afgeleid van het Europese begrip 'keukenkast (wandkast)', dat bestaat uit laden met planken daarop, maar wordt gebruikt om keukengerei in op te bergen. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere a cómodas bajas con un espejo montado y usualmente usada en un dormitorio o vestidor como una superficie para arreglar y almacenar vestuario y artículos de tocador. El término en este contexto es usado principalmente en América, y deriva del "dresser (aparador)" europeo, que tiene cajoneras y con cajones montados, pero es usado para almacenar utensilios de cocina y vajillas.
