Antique Furniture/Hathaway Dresser

Could you please tell me the value of this dresser?  My husband wants to throw it out, but I saw the Hathaway label inside one of the drawers and thought it might be an antique.  It does have a little damage to the outside of one of the drawers as you can see in the photo.
Thank you.

Hi Maureen,

Your Hathaway French style while not an antique, most likely was made in the 1950's.
It also appears to have more issues than just the one drawer.  I feel  due to its
overall condition and lacking good form its value would be $50.  Your husband was
not far off.

Best wishes,
