If anyone else has any input on these pieces please feel free to add your opinions.

I'm thinking they are from the 40's or 50's would they be art novoe? I'm sorry for the spelling but hope you guys know what I am talking about.

RE: Calling Linda C. Pics!

They sort of look 30-ish to me too. But I can't see the whole shape of the pieces well enough to tell. Is that a sleigh bed? Is there a mirror on the dresser? Dovetailing? What does the back look like? Can you get a clear picture of the wood and that beading?
It looks like either burl walnut trim on flame maple or maple veneer on walnut...hard to tell from the pictures.
Is there a maker's mark anywhere? What do the insides of the top drawers look like?
Can you see by looking at that chip on the drawer front if it's veneered or not?
Gotta learn to be a detective sometimes! LOL!
Pretty set at any rate!

1910 - 1930s - the ornate applied moldings and multi-toned wood was popular approximately then. Not Art Deco or Art Nouveau ... just one of the mixed-style designs manufacturers concocted.

Looks like a nice set!
