Oak Dresser-unsure on date, help please!

Hello!

I acquired a dresser years ago and am just now working towards stripping it and re-staining it.

I have done some research as I was curious to when the piece dates to but I have uncovered such conflicting info.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Since my dresser is currently is being stripped, I have provided this picture of another dresser that almost matches my item to a tea except for the hardware.

Fairly typical, machine made golden oak dating about 1915 to 25 or so.
Good sturdy solid stuff....
Sadly people often painted them...I have stripped a few!!
