Can't believe I've finally seen a set similar to mine!  My full size bed has a carving of a lighthouse,(headboard),and an anchor (footboard).  Same carvings are on every piece.  My dresser also has part of a ship's wheel on either side of the mirror. My set originally belonged to my dad's cousin when she was young, which would date it in the very early 1930's.  Don't know the manufacturer.

I will attempt to answer questions about American antique furniture, including construction details, style, period, manufacturers, care, repair and storage. I do not have any background in appliances, musical instruments, sewing machines, trunks, lighting, clocks or children's and baby furniture and will not respond to questions about those items.


I ran an antique furniture restoration business for twenty years. I am a nationally syndicated columnist on the subject of antique furniture for such publications as Antique Week and New England Antiques Journal. I have produced one video on the subject of furniture identification and my book "HOW TO BE A FURNITURE DETECTIVE" is now available.I have also published articles in Antique Trader, Chicago Art Deco Society, Northeast Magazine, Victorian Decorating and Lifestyles, Professional Refinishing, Antiques and Art Around Florida and Antique Shoppe.
