Answer
Hathaways was a retail outlet and did not manufacturer furniture but did contract and sell quality.

dresser is mahogany veneer made in the 1920s.

since there are some condition issues with the surfaces the value presently would be low, however, it appears that a good waxing with antique mahogany color Briwax would turn this into a 450$ dresser retail pricing.

When waxing, remove the drawer pulls first and follow the directions on the can of wax.you will like the results.
