The dresser, often of cupboard form or with a set of drawers and open underneath was used for the display of fine tableware, such as silver and pewter, or for the serving of food. Widely used as far back as Tudor times when of simple side table form by the late 17th century the dresser had developed a low backboard often with small drawers for spices and the like. This backboard soon developed into the dresser with plate rack or high dresser and often had a pot board underneath.
