I am wondering how old my vanity may be and also how much it may be worth. Thanks in advance for any information you may be able to share with me.

Answer
this is a 1920s piece. It is in walnut (dark flat surfaces) and birds eye or burl ash veneers (the lighter colors), and mahogany veneer (reddish color).  The frame and legs are sweet gum.

i cannot tell the condition from the photos but these sell retail in a shop at 400-450.  yours is better than average grade.  some are plainer som are more deorative.

colonial revival style.
