I recently purchased this furniture and was just wanting to know something about it and it's value.  I reaaly know nothing about antiques but I just loved this bedroom set.  I am sending a picture of the Bed and Dresser.  There is also a matching Armoir.

Answer
it is from the 1920s.  called colonial revival style.  walnut and mahogany veneers, probably sweet gum and/or tulip poplar frame.  looks to be in great condition, is the surface smooth to the touch and the drawers work smoothly?

what did you give?
