I have a bedroom set from west Michigan furniture company, early 1920, with Asian carvings on drawers and lock on each drawer. 6 drawer chest latches on drawer to convert to a desk? and wonder value?

Dominique King

My best suggestion would be to try contacting the museum directly via its Web site http://www.grpm.org/ or its Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/GRMuseum to ask where you might find an antique dealer or expert in valuing vintage furniture.

Hello Dominique, just read your piece and enjoyed it much! Because of a connection one of my grandfathers had working for Forslund's Furniture during the 40's-60's I was interested in learning more about the company but when I clicked on the link that was underscored it said 404 Error File not found. Thought you would like to know. Have a good day, Char White

Dominique King

Thanks for the hEad's up Char. I replaced the broken link with a link to a history of Forsland from the Grand Rapids Historical Commission.
