QUESTION: Widdecomb label in both dresser and armoire

Answer
Thanks for the photo.

These are nice pieces done in walnut and walnut veneers.
Company operated 1873-1950 when it merged with Mueller Furniture.  This label was used beginning in 1928 and I believe these were 1930-early 40s.

The condition and form make these salable in the range of 750-950 minimum each in the market.

Hope this is what you needed.

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
