Hi, thank you for stopping and looking. I have been seeking any information I can find on my vanity. I inheirted this piece from my great aunt and it had been sitting in storage for me for 20+ years.

I have learned from reading online about Charles Limbert and that this was actually probably a later piece becuase of the makers mark.

This is a little bit of family history to me any information that can be given would be appriciated!

Thank you, I am fortunate that my parents hung onto it for so long for me and the dresser that may or may not match.

Well... when you see the words Van Raalte under the Limbert mark, it is a later piece. It has no realtion to the Arts and Crafts Era pieces but they are nice items nonetheless. A principal of the company, VanRaalte took over after Charles Limbert died. This helps date the piece somewhat.
