This is a bedroom set from my parents house, after years of use, the veneer is coming off. I'm not sure if it's worth trying to bring it back it's original shape and if it has any value. The handles are lovely and the details beautiful. Can you tell me anything about the age and quality of the set?

Thank you for your time. Barb.

Answer
although a nice looking and good quality set in a classic style the condition hurts.  to restore would cost more than the market value of the set.  if you could do the work your self it would be a labor of love.

looks to be from the 1940s.

repairs in my shop would be as follows, including restoration and repair.
dresser
850
bedside table
350

hope this is what you need
