Headboard  
I have a dresser with six drawers (dovetailed) detachable mirror - bench with cane seat.  There are two matching 4 poster twin bed frames with original bottom slats.  All pieces have label from Forest Furniture Co., North Wilkesboro, NC - no dates on label.  Can you possibly advise the value of these pieces?

Answer
appear to be from the 1920-30s.  these sets were usually in a white wood like maple or birch.  the pictures do not sho wood grain so i cannot tell fore sure.

twin beds should sell at 350-400 each and the vanity at 350-400 as well.

company closed in the 1960s when it burned down.

hope this is what you needed.
