    I bought this today. I know it’s old, I’m just curious as to how old? It has dovetail joints. But that’s all I know as I’m new to collecting.

      I’m wondering if your dresser is a “marriage” of 2 different pieces of furniture.

      I was thinking that too, but the wood on the side of the drawers by the marble is the same color. If it is though, can we still figure out an age of either of the pieces?

      I know those on CW who are furniture experts will want more pictures. You can post 4 pictures so show them the drawer dovetails, if those are locks on the drawers be sure to show the mechanism, show any writing on the back, take drawers out so you can show internal construction. The site has some pointers on photography that might help.
      And if you are posting from your cell phone, if you “edit” your photos before you post them, they will post right-side up. Everyone seems to have problems with sideways pictures till you get the hang of dealing with the quirks.

      Thank you! I’ll add more photos and hopefully we’ll get a better idea of what we’re looking at. Thank you!

      I have some concerns about the drawer pulls. The glove drawer pulls are different to the ones on the dresser. The two drawers on the bottom right hand side have a feint outline of larger pulls around the current ones. I've stared so hard at the pulls, that my eyes are getting crossed! I too think you have a marriage here, but you're right about the colour 0f the striping at the side of the glove drawers.

      I'm not one of those experts Watchsearcher spkeaks of, so I'll be quiet now and wait for wiser folk.

      p.s. The mirror part is so much larger than the bottom, the two are very out of proportion.

      Oh man. I didn’t even realize that. Is the marriage of two pieces a bad thing?
