i have an antique dresser that has wooden wheels, a mirror on a swivel, three drawers, in original condition. i believe it is early 1900's, maybe earlier. how do i find out what it may be worth?

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.
