A dresser made by Olive and Myers. Little history on the company is:
The roots of today's uniView Technologies Corporation are traced back to 1899 with the founding of the Olive & Myers Manufacturing Co. and Houston spin-off Myers-Lottman Co. (later to become Myers-Spalti). Engaged in the production of quality household furniture and mattresses for nearly sixty years, they became the two strongest furniture manufacturers in the Southwest.
In 1957, Curtis Mathes & Associates purchased a major interest in the Olive-Myers-Spalti Manufacturing Co. The new firm, called Curtis Mathes Manufacturing Company, combined its decades of furniture building and electronics experience, first to enter the hi-fi business and, in 1959, the television industry.
With these changes, Curtis Mathes started its tradition of combining top quality video and audio products housed in fine furniture. Just four years later, the Company entered the world of color television, beginning the era in which the Company became a household name.
It’s extremely nicely made and is in pristine condition and was recently refinished. It has really nice rounded edges and very 50's style handles on the drawers. All original. The mirror can be removed for easy transportation. This is an extremely heavy piece of furniture and will require 2 people to move it. Dimensions of the dresser alone is 33 x 60 x 19
