legs and feet of dress  
I have a dresser I got at a flea market in Los Angeles a few years ago. Was wondering if you could tell what era/decade it came from and/or what style it's in? Thank you so much!

Answer
Hi Cecily
Nice to hear from you.
These dressers are very common. Lots around.
Veneer faces on the drawers.
From the 1940's.
I much prefer these old pieces to the new crap they make today.
If you plan on redoing it, get back to me.
Regards
Eileen

Expertise

I can answer most questions about the repairing and refinishing of all your old furniture items (the things we call antiques). I can also give you advice on what wood items to choose and what wood items to avoid at auctions, flea markets etc. I DO NOT give appraisals on antiques as this is not my field of expertise.

Experience

I have been repairing, refinishing and of course buying old furniture for the past 30 years. On any given weekend I can be found at auction sales or flea markets searching out a good buy. I have taken several courses in this area over the years, but I find "Hands On" learning to be the best teacher. I can help you avoid the pitfalls and problems of this wonderful rewarding craft.
