Which dresser should Porcelain get?

I've been searching for the perfect vintage or antique dresser for awhile. My current dresser has been with me since I was 13 and it is about time for a change. I want something in decent condition, is under $500, holds a fair amount of clothes, and is either antique or vintage.

I recently found two dressers that are possible contenders. #1 Looks to be in great shape and is a heck of a deal. #2 Is a little bit more expensive, but not too badly priced for a dresser. It is swanky and out of the two choices more my style. Both dressers speak to me. #1 for its age and memories. #2 for its style, swank and sophistication.

Which dresser do you think I should try to get? #1 or #2? Please leave your votes in the comment section.

UPDATE: I waited too long to contact the sellers and now both posts have been deleted. Thanks for your comments. The search continues and next time I won't be so lazy!

I vote for #2 because I think it's more unique. But, I'm not paying for it. $250 is a little steep so you would want to make sure it's in good shape and all. No boogers.

oooh, tough one! BUT, I have to say that my very very first pick was #2....but, only if the drawer integrity is REALLY GOOD. Here be my 2 cents...

I vote for #2. From the things I've seen that you love, if seems to be more your style. I also think more smaller drawers are better than fewer deeper drawers...

I think I'm going with #2 also. Looks to be a pretty solid piece and a richer color, and I'm not quite digging the scrolling on the bottom of #1. And they used the magic words "Eames era" in the #2 posting, so that sold me. :P
