    Very clever Studly! (I didn't even think of that until you posted it. +20!)

    An RJ member was actually able to identify an obscure bronze of mine that an actual curator with the same piece couldn't (see: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1528481/) so I figured I'd give the bedroom set query another go and bump this thread to tap your collective antiques expertise!

    eagermuscle saidThanks guys, you clearly know a lot more about antiques than I do. I always considered the set to be circa 1920s transitional nouveau/deco (if there's such a thing), particularly since to my knowledge there was never a footboard. Everything's inlaid, no applique. All original hardware/knobs, none missing. The pics are actually unflattering; the set's in better condition than it appears in photos. No damage from the stereo; it's tiny, doesn't let off a lot of heat, is dusted under regularly and sits on a cork coaster. Here are 3/4 and back pics of the nightstand plus closeup shots of the joinery and innards:

    Someone shot a hell of a load on the back of that night stand

    It's beautiful even if it turns out to be a 20s reproduction. My mother was always trying to get me intrested in antiques, but it didn't take, so I can't be more helpful. Still, Sotheby's or Christie's would be DELIGHTED to come take a look.

    My partner & I just looked at these pics, and agree it looks transitional, just prior to Art Nouveau. Some fading echoes of Second Empire, and other elements thrown in, not very coherent. Without actually seeing it I can't judge the age, whether period or recent.

    I've been away from this thread, distracted by life events, so a belated new thanks to everyone for the continued feedback. I wanted to especially thank a poster who had given a very long, thoughtful response right before Art's (and thank YOU, Art) but he deleted his post so I can't remember who it was!

    I still have no idea about the set so I'll keep necroing the thread every few months because you guys were very helpful about another unidentified piece - in particular, mindgarden, here: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1528481

    mindgarden was able to do what the ART CURATOR at Gramercy Park's Explorer's Club in Manhattan was unwilling to do - identify this small scale version that I owned of a large bronze on display in the club's dining room:

    Perpetual mad props to mindgarden!
