    23" wide, 45" long, 35 height, drawers are 7" deep, very hard wood and a little darker than ZAR Rosewood Wood Stain, wooden wheel casters supported by brass. Not sure of the hardware but I attached a picture of it. Someone told me it was made in 1902. I am just very curious about this piece....I am going to restore this gorgeous piece for my mother for her birthday....just wanted to know a little history so I can tell her about it when we give it to her on May 26. Thank you for any information....this is my very first piece of furniture that I have ever restored back to the BEAUTIFUL luster it once had???? THIS ITEM IS NOT FOR SALE JUST WANTED TO KNOW IF ANYONE KNEW ANY INFORMATION (CIRCA, ERA, BRAND) ON THIS GORGEOUS PIECE OF HISTORY.

      Very nice piece, it looks 1930's or so. Hard to tell from pic, some of the hardware may have been replaced but a nice match for your dresser beauty !~

      I had a dresser similar to this in style, hardware and wood -- and the back of the mirror had 1907 marked as a date. This style and type was made for many years so difficult to get too specific. The machined dove tails I would think place it in the early 1900's.
