First, that's not a dresser, it's a chest of drawers, a bedroom piece. It's from the late 1940's, as far as i can tell. I am in the middle of fixing a chest exactly like this. I haven't yet looked at the back to get a model number. From what I see in this picture I would say that this might sell for in the $400 - $500 range, if you're lucky. Sligh is a high end company, but it's still manufactured furniture and it doesn't have the collectability of museum quality pieces. Plus, I see a bit of wear and tear, chips and scratches and the like.

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.
