Antique Vanity? Input please.

BKS123April 27, 2013


I have been on the search for an antique vanity for quite some time. I had looked at several but none were what I was looking for. I was at an antique store the other day and came upon an older vanity in a style that I have never seen before. So I question the age and if it was really used as a vanity. Any input would be appreciated. The drawers have a single dovetail in the front and what appears to be machine dovetailing in the back. It is heavy and solid. I liked it because it was old and worn looking (my personal preference). I guess I am wondering if I ended up with a reproduction or "knock-off". I have searched the internet on clues to date this with no luck. Any thoughts are appreciated.

Here is a picture of the back of the drawer. I cannot figure out how to upload multiple pictures.

I would say it's a waterfall style vanity from the 1930's.
