I am also looking for some information on this name I have a chest of drawers, that would be used in a dining room. Inside has the same stamp Jacques furniture with we aim for perfection. I can't seem to find anything on this piece.

I have a full bedroom set including vanity with stool, ladies dresser with mirror, man's dresser and double bed - all matching.

Bought a number if years ago in Sackville NB Canada.

There is also a stamp on th einside of a dresser drawer  - man shooting an arrow with "We Aim for Perfection" "Jacques Furniture" beneath the picture.

Wondering where this might have been made.

Uhhh, I own a headboard, footboard and matching dressing table. I'm pretty sure it's easy to figure out they were made in Canada. Either 30s, 40s or 50s.
