I bought this for $50 a few weeks back. The mirror frame was broken and the old finish was awful--black, alligatored, damaged beyond hope. I was flabbergasted when I started removing the old varnish and saw this gorgeous wood underneath! There's a plate on the back that says W.B. Moses and Sons, Washington DC, and the mirror was stamped with the date 1903 on the back. The pulls were all missing so I bought the ones you see from a place that sells authentic period reproduction hardware--I hope I chose wisely relatively plain brass Victorian era pulls. If anybody has any other information about this piece, or about similar ones, I'd be very interested! For one thing, I'd like to know what this is properly called--is it a chest of drawers, a bureau, or what? Thank you for looking!
