    the label is really worn down. it looks like some sort of shield in the center with a banner below it. sorry that is the best i can get it to look. thanks for any help.

    I don't recognize it to say, "not American" but that's what I think so far! :shame:
    Is the wood tiger oak? Please show us the dresser.

    hi thanks for getting back to me. i don't think it is tiger oak. the lady i bought it from said it was mahogany. the style to me looks mid century. i definitely agree it doesnt look american. but what do i know, i train dogs..... ;) i can get pics tomorrow. the dressers are behind a lot of dog crates at the moment in a tiny room. so it will take some effort to get the pics. hopefully tomorrow.

    Methinks 40's for the furniture. (And much as I hate claptraps and thingles extraneous to the subject matter, the mirror and the jar/lamp are very pretty!)

    im not sure what that means..... but the frame is one that came from my great grandmothers house and use to hold a picture in her dining room. it is now just an open frame. the vase is one my mother got for christmas that she no longer used.

    im hoping to find the manufacturer of the dressers. thanks for your reply

    I like your wood floor.....:)

    The style is Hepplewhite, ribbon mahogany, a revival piece, probably 20th century

    thank you so much for your reply. i had heard of hepplewhite, but not of ribbon mahogany. thank you for your input. does this piece look american??? with the shield and the banner, i cant find any american makers that resemble those paper labels. also, any resources for books or online to purchase that may have the answer? any advice is greatly appreciated. thanks again.

    It could be, it could be english as well. What do drawers look like on secondary wood species?

    ok, thank you. well i will have to get more pics tomorrow. the dog crates are back in place with dogs inside. plus i have to get all the stuff out of the chest. i don't know what kind of wood it is. i do remember it looks different than the outside. i have been researching and am wondering now if it is a scandinavian logo. its so hard to tell not being familiar with this territory. ask me about dogs..... ;)
