Question
Dresser
Dresser  
I was given this dresser a number of years ago and I'm was wondering where is is from how old and what the value on this would be.

Answer
this is a sideboard from a dining room in oak.

made round 1890-1910

where made is impossible to tell without a label as there were about 5000 manufacturers operating at the time.

if you have the beveled edge mirror the piece would sell in a shop at 600 to 650 as shown.
