The Antiques Guide
What a great place to ask about stuff. I bought this bedroom set at a garage sale last weekend:
Headboard, footboard, dresser and also a mirror, although it might not be original. The knobs have a purple-brown plastic around them, which I though might be bakelite, but the expert at the flea market said is was too brittle. She called it something else, although I don't remember what. The previous owner said she paid about $350 at an antique store several years ago. Do you think it's old enough to be genuine art deco? The inside of the drawers is in remarkably good condition, almost unused. There are a few scratches and knicks, but the little metal wheels on the bed still roll! I was thinking 1930's? Any ideas?
