A Welsh dresser was also known as a kitchen dresser or pewter cupboard. Traditionally dressers were kept in the kitchen to store and display crockery, pewter and silverware. Dressers were modified to suit needs. Dressers in Scotland may have had a tin lined drawer or “a porridge drawer”, where fresh made porridge could be poured and left to cool, later it could be sliced and taken for later consumption. Dressers were replaced in the kitchen by other pieces of furniture and later tended to be found in dining rooms, to store and display the dinnerware.
