The size is 16 3/4 inches across the bottom and 21 1/2 inches tall. I found the item at a junk store and planned to give it as a gift. When I opened the drawers and discovered the way it was put together, I decided that it had to be an antique. I then researched it online and discovered that it was a rare piece made by Carl Forslund of Grand Rapids Michigan. There is a paper on the back in excellent condition that lists: Carl Forslund Quaint American Furniture Grand Rapids Michigan. It is in excellent condition.
