Customer Question
We have a dresser and...
We have a dresser and highboy dresser of solid mahogany from Hungerford. In Memphis. There are two labels in the top left hand corner of each top left drawer. The paper label is red and gold with black type. It is from the Mahogany Association Inc., with Genuine Mahogany #332 written. The other maybe a stamp of some kind with the type in gold, stating Solid Mahogany, Hungerford, Memphis. The dresser measures 34 1/2" X 54" x 19 1/8" with rectangle mirror 30" X 40" framed in mahogany also. Eight drawers. Two top are 4X24" and the other six are 6 1/2X24". Under the drawers there is a curving line with a 7" half circle carving (like a flower) in the middle. The legs are rounded kind of like the bottom of a wood golf club. The highboy measures 34" x 47 I/4" x19 1/8". It has 5 drawers that are 29" x 7 1/2" and a top drawer that is 29" x 4".
