Mid Century Lane Mosaic Dresser with Mirror
A rare and unusual vintage piece from Lane Altavista, this Mid Century Lane Mosaic Dresser with Mirror exudes retro style in spades! The warmth of the wood, lively grain, and geometric design contribute to the hip edginess of its time period, the 1970s. The dresser features 9 drawers with dovetail construction secured to metal tracks for smooth operation. Recessed grooves on the underside of the drawers allow easy operation without marring the flow of the piece.
Stamped Lane Altavista, Virginia in the top left drawer. The dresser bears a stamp reading “77 568-07 SER-R7731 60” on the rear of the piece. The mirror is stamped “568-06 SER. NO. 3770260” on back.
Bold and forward thinking yet artfully restrained, the design of the Mosaic line sought to toe the line between avant-garde and mass appeal. Unfortunately, not much information currently exists on this line. While often attributed to designer Paul Evans, nothing definitively links the two. Still, a quick look at three of the more popular Lane lines from the 70s belies their similarity. Search the Mosaic, Staccato, and Pueblo collections note the similar inspiration with wildly divergent styles.
