Room TonicThe Chinoiserie Highboy is  one of Drexel's finest works.  The Highboy has 11 drawers and a removable top section for moving purposes. It is also stamped with the Drexel maker's mark.
For over a century, Drexel (formerly known as the Drexel Furniture Company) has been producing high-quality, classic and traditional furniture for both homes and institutions. Established in 1903 in North Carolina, what was initially a modest furniture production operation developed into an immense manufacturing enterprise with almost a dozen factories across North and South Carolina. The brand’s reputation for both quality and craftsmanship has kept pace, which has been exemplified by its many prominent partnerships — ranging from luxury hotels to the United States Department of State. Through its American-made quality and emphasis on functionality and design, Drexel has established itself as one of the world’s leading procurers of exceptionally designed and manufactured furnishings.

    Shipping:  All items ship from our shop located at 22B Atlantic Avenue, Marblehead, MA  01945. 

    We strive to ship the same day payment is received.  Shipping is done via USPS or UPS. All items have tracking numbers which are emailed once a shipping label is generated. Any item valued $250 and up will have a signature confirmation at no extra charge. Shipping to AK, HI, PR, APO/FPO takes a longer to arrive.  Once an order has been shipped and the delivery's tracking number begins to show progress, Room Tonic is no longer responsible for the package as it is in the hands of the courier. Room Tonic cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen orders, or any damages that may occur during delivery.  For failed deliveries that are sent back to us, Room Tonic will cancel the order and refund the purchase excluding any applicable shipping costs. Room Tonic cannot be held responsible for delivery attempts, failed deliveries or any other issues with the courier.

    International Buyers: Shipping costs tend to be much higher than US shipping costs for items. Any item over $75 is shipped registered and insured.  Import duties, taxes, and charges (typically collected upon delivery or pickup) are the buyer's responsibility and are not included in the item price or shipping charges. Please check with your country's customs office prior to bidding/buying to determine what these additional costs will be.  We claim the value of the package based on the purchase price.  It is against the law to claim any item as a gift to avoid customs fees.  Please do not ask us to do so.  International delivery can take up to three weeks and sometime as long as six to arrive, due to Post Office or Customs delay.
