This is a Chippendale style highboy made in Memphis, Tennessee by Hungerford Furniture.

The Mahogany Association label indicates a date prior to 1964, so that fits in with your

timeline of purchase in the 1950's. The number 332 is the association number attributed to Hungerford Furniture.

The highboy has a current value of $1000, the 5-drawer dresser with mirror has a value of $400 to $500 as a set.
