We found these on a curb, on a Sunday morning, in Crystal, MN. We liked them right away, which is why we picked them up. We really wanted them to sell them. I didn't realize it was going to be so difficult to identify them. Even an appraiser couldn't tell me who made them.
This set includes, what I think is called a Tall Boy and a Short Boy.
The only marks on the tall boy are 220, 33 and 41. There is also a mark, 220 1/2 on the short boy.
The measurements of the tall boy are:
Tall dresser is 34" W X 49" H X 18 1/2" D.
The measurements of the short boy are:
Low dresser is 44" W X 36" H X 19" D
Mirror is 26.5 W X 39 1/4 H
The short boy has a mirror has a propeller at the top and wood wheels on the bottom, and the bottom two drawers has propellers also. The tall boy also has propeller handles on the two bottom drawers. That is why I call it an Aviation set.
Some research turned up furniture, made in the 50's, for children, by a company called, Virginia House Maple Rock. These were the closest to depict what we have. I found a western suite and a ship set. I read there was an airplane set, but I never could find any pictures of it to, possibly, identify it that way. Virginia House Maple Rock always emblazoned their Logo on one drawer. Nothing like that is on either dresser. Since they don't have any logo on them, I don't know who made these.
Thanks for helping me identify them.
