Dressers like you have described were in style for about 40 years (1880-1920). You will need to post pictures if you want anyone to attempt to date it. Focus on the hardware, drawer joinery and underneath (if possible). Thanks!

ebay has many dozens of restoration and original casters. You have to make sure they fit in the holes on the corners of you piece. I paid $12 for four replica wooden casters not too long ago.

This one I took prior to knowing attached was the cigar box I'll take a detailed photo of it at a later time. Anybody estimate a year - the mirror too is in fair condition. I would like to repair the wood first later is beginning to warp / lift. Any recommendations?

This is a secret compartment found under a drawer is this typical? And is this a cigar box? This is still part of a vanity I previously posted. Thank you!

What year to do you think he's dresser was made? The one with wheels as picture shows. I have one similar, with those same kind of wheels. There's also markings underneath 200/41 and something else I can't make out

marks on the metal that the wheels are on is dated 1890 Philadelphia. what little history I do have they probably did come from there as I got them in central Jersey.
