Yorkshire had a tradition of producing large, architectural forms of dressers, made for farmhouses and manor houses during the 18th century. Typically, they have a central column of drawers in the base, flanked by cupboard doors which have raised and fielded panels and with no drawers above these doors. The shelves above usually have fluted pilasters flanking the shelves and complex cornices above. Commonly they have a row of small drawers attached to the shelves which sit on top of the base and in some dressers, a thin bar is present between the shelves. This common form was made more extensively than in Yorkshire, however, and designs were made, usually in a plainer and lighter form in the Lakeland areas, as well as in the far North Eastern counties of Northumberland and Durham.
