    The dresser is a marriage, with a Renaissance Revival walnut men's dresser ca. 1880 supporting a Depression-era mirror. It might be worth just as much or even more without the mirror.

    The bed is Eastlake/aesthetic ca. 1890, also walnut. Very pretty.

    I don't know about the markets in Louisiana, so can't determine a fair market value for your items. I do know that Victorian tends to do better in the NOLA area. In my part of the U.S. Midwest the dresser might bring around $300 at auction, the same or a bit more for the bed provided the side rails are there. You may get better numbers in New Orleans.
