I'm new here and I just have some questions. My great grandfather's farm house is scheduled to be demolished next week and I have acquired this chifferobe that belonged to him. I have searched and cant find any information about a piece like this. I have found similar pieces with square mirrors where the round one is but nothing with a round mirror. I know its is pretty rough shape and I want to restore it as best I can. I guess my questions are does anyone know anything about how old this is, where it came from or anything? And any advice on restoring it? Should I strip the finish or try to save it? I'm new to antique furniture so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
wood with mirrors
round mirror on the door of the hat cabinet, it also says 3140 3/4 C'ROBE WAL. GLASS. on the back of it
This chifferobe was in my great grandfathers farm house. he had it as long as i can remember and my father said he had always had it when he was a kid too. i was told by a relative that this piece was close if not more than 100 years old. i just want to know exactly how old and maybe who made it.
