I have an antique solid cherry wood dresser w/mirror that I'd like to sell, but have no idea of it's worth. My aunt gave it to me telling me that it's over a hundred years old. I've looked everywhere for a manufacturer or some type of identification, but have found nothing. Any ideas?

There are many on this site that can likely help, but not without pictures - close-ups of the various parts, including drawer sides, back, and (if possible) the underside. Good luck!

What you have is an 'Empire Period" chest.
It is not solid cherry. It is pine with mahogany veneer.

It will probably be a tough sell as this period, unless extremely fancy, is not popular and it looks like there are a lot of veneer buggers. Veneer repair is one of those things that most people stay away from.

Sorry Suszinga - when I initially replied there were no pictures visible. I agree with STQ.

Nice piece with a very warm glow. I agree with STQ on the construction.
