My father had this bedroom set that none of us daughters are interested in keeping. However we can tell that there was remarkable ccraftsmanship and some beautiful wood involved. I know that this set was purchased sometime after 1970, but other than that I have only been able to determine that the dovetailing was machined,not hand cut. I know very little about antiques, but the arch motif and wood pattern seem characteristic of a particular style to me. So far I haven't seen anything matching though, so hopefully you can shed some light on the age and ballpark value of the set for us? I have sent more pictures via email. We appreciate your help!
