I have been all over the internet and have found information about the Jennings furniture and subsequent Henry Jennings and son company but cannot find anything about how to date this particular piece. it would help to know when specifically the company name changed to Henry Jennings and son. I know it occurred after Henry bought out, I believe his brother? any assistance would be most appreciated

    stunning item.....

    could u edit the post and click on FULL IMAGE so we could see them clearly ..
  4. thanks for the education did not know you could do that. by the way it would only let me make one of them a full image and I'm having trouble posting. I posted five photos and it double posted one of them and left another one out so there must be a glitch

  7. well I live in a small home and it was the only space I had. I fell in love with it and thought what the heck. I don't really need a dresser.. and who doesn't eat in bed once in awhile? I can do a whole Buffet right in my bedroom.
