Can anyone date this dresser?
Been a lurker for awhile, but now have a reason to join in the discussion! I purchased a dresser at an auction near my home on the weekend. I live about 2 hrs west of Toronto in a small town and the auction was in a village even smaller about 10 minutes away. The house was also being sold and it dates to 1910. Many of the items sold with the house were just as old too, but I'm not sure on this dresser.
It is maple (confirmed) and has dovetailed joints in the drawer, but that's my limit of knowledge.
I'll give a link to the pictures rather than post them b/c there are 11. :)
It is likely that it could be made by the family that sold the house or even local Mennonites too.
Either way, I think it will look great in my 117 year old house and regardless of how old it is, I love it and it was a steal at $2!
I'm hoping to figure out the age so it can help guide how I restore it.
