My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. There was only the photo of the piece that came with your original inquiry and it was a blurry picutre of the mark.
Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the mark in-focus and a picture of the set.

I know the mark is blurry. That is how it appears on the left back corner. I could not make out any of the letters. I thought maybe by the style of the mark that you might know.I included a picture of the armoire/tallboy. I also have the dresser, but no mirror.

Please look on the inside of a top right drawer ( on the right slat on the inside of that drawer) of the dresser. That is one spot where maker's haide a tag, label or mark sometimes. A picture of the dresser would also help.

I had already looked inside all of the drawers and on the backs of both pieces. I am including a pic of the dresser.

Thanks, ***** ***** some time to do some more looking. If I am unable to find it, I will opt-out but I am not ready to give up just yet. No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I respond next.

I am unable to find this exact maker for you other than what you already know (mid century modern, 50-70 possible danish maker). I will opt-out and allow another expert to try at no extra cost to you.

Would it please be possible of you to send more images of the just the mark taken from different angles. I understand the letters are slightly obscured in the mark, however a more clear photo of it may help yield a match.
