Help identifying furniture

abelmanJuly 19, 2013

Hi - I was wondering if anyone could help me identify anything about this furniture (from my grandmother). The dresser is part of a four-piece set, which also includes a tall dresser, nightstand and desk.

thank you very much

Looks French to me. Need more pics of the piece AND the rest of the suite. Please check for any labels/tags also.

I posted a few more pictures. I believe there are 6 pieces in the set: high dresser, wide dresser, night table, desk, chair, and wide seat.

I noticed some 2 and 3 digit numbers on the backs of some of the pieces: 67, 156 and 162.

I would appreciate whatever help anyone could provide in identifying this set.

Thank you!

Very nice French or French influenced pieces - hard to judge the age because that style has been revived several times.

Are the metal pieces bronze, gilt bronze (would be very high class), painted metal, or brass?

Can you show the side of a drawer so we can see construction? that helps date things.

It's a "bronze mounted bedroom suite" with some inlays

Are you wanting to sell? Or just identifying the pieces?

Thanks for your help. At this point, we're just trying to identify them. Unfortunately I can't answer any of the other questions, and I don't have the furniture nearby, but I will take some pictures of the drawers the next time that I'm in the area.

What you call a desk looks like a dressing table to me. A little chair or stool would be placed at the center for m'lady to sit and do her toilette with all her powders and perfumes.

French Deco late 1800's early 1900's . Looks to be a mix of Walnut and Burled Carpathian Elm .
The "desk" is a vanity ,meant to be sat at with makeup and perfumes on top .
