Please check a few things.

  1. Make sure this dresser is made of real wood and not pressed wood. I have seen this dresser in thrift stores in the past and they are mostly made from pressed wood.
  2. This looks like a mid century Danish model dresser. However, they made copies of these dresser back then and they sold for a few hundred dollars.
  3. It appears that the drawers on the left hand side have an issue and don't fit correctly in their place.
  4. Do these draws have sliders on the underside?
  5. Here is an dresser that is similar to yours selling on eBay. Now keep in mind this dresser is in good condition and made of real wood. You can use this as a guideline, but I really don't think you can sell this dresser for very much. www.ebay.com/.../222658570121?hash=item33d77c2789...

Find out what type of wood it's made of

Search the back, bottom, and inside paneling for makes and serial numbers

Cross check your dresser with ones listed on eBay. I'm seeing similar ones to yours for over $300: www.ebay.com/.../bn_16561652

I agree that your dresser looks like one of the less expensive styles that can be found in thrift stores and used furniture stores.

  • Now - we good be wrong - but you will have to find more information on your dresser for anyone to be able to help you find a truer value.
  • Do you have any information about the age of the dresser?
  • You will have to determine if it is really all wood, as well as what kind if possible, or if it is a veneer and not solid wood.
  • You may be able to find a name or markings on the inside or underneath a drawer, or on the back or even on the bottom of the dresser.

  • Even if this is a quality vintage Danish dresser, overall condition will play a big part in actual value.
  • I have reviewed a lot of vintage furniture in the past and I do not remember ever seeing a quality dresser with this type of front "pulls".
  • This is one reason I have a feeling it is not a quality piece.
  • You can take a look at images of vintage Danish and see if you find anything similar to your dresser (most were made of darker wood also).
  • www.google.com/search?q=danish+modern+long+dresser...
  • If this is as I think, (even if it is in very good condition) it may not be worth more than $50.

I could be completely wrong about this so you should try finding more information about your dresser and maybe ask for a free appraisal so you will be sure of the value.

Here are a couple of links if you want to ask for a free appraisal.

If you decide to use any of these sites you will still (most likely) need more information and definitely 2 or 3 good pictures if you really want to know the value.
