1930-1940 bedroom suite
Asked Apr 27, 2008, 08:31 AM
I, recently, bought my Grandparents house and am trying to get rid of everything in it, so that I can move in. There is a beautiful late 30's to early 40's Thomasville French provincial or french country bedroom suite. There is a double bed, 2 dressers - one with a mirror, a nightstand and a vanity. The bed has a headboard and a footboard. There is a metal plate, on the inside that says Thomasville and on the back of the furniture the numbers L-1525-12 are stamped. I have googled everything about this furniture and can't find anything about it. It seems to be solid wood - no Vaneers, it's a light and has a yellowish finish. It's not very fancy, but the headboard and footboard are arched and the all of the dressers and vanity have a bowed front. If I had a spare bedroom, I would, definitely, keep the furniture - it's beautiful and in exellant condition. I don't want to just give it away to a thrift shop - I want it to go to someone who can appreciate it. I have contacted a couple antique dealers and the only one I heard back from, told me it was deco, without looking at it. After researching, I can definitely say it is NOT deco - not even similar. I want to know, if I should keep searching for an antique dealer or just give up. Thank you.
