Do you know anything about this dresser? I  inherited it from a friend who passed away who loved and collected  antiques but I am not sure if this is one of them.  It has Mohogany number 609 written on the back  along with order number 268.  It has a sticker in the drawer that says grand rapids trademark  registered.  I was just curious to know any history on it.

Answer
serpentine front mahogany veneered chest of drawers manufactured around 1900 with replacement hardware.

what did you want to know.  use the followup functions to ask more.

thanks.
