I bought an old vanity at an estate auction. It has 3 mirrors ( 2 that swivel ) and has a drawer and a storage cabinet on each side. There is a stamp on the back that says " Combination Walnut Veneer and Gumwood, Unagusta MFG CO Item # 205 " Does anyone have any idea how old this might be, or the value of this piece? thanks.
Inherited two twin size Sleigh Beds. The label on the headboard indicates these beds were sold at Bloomingdale Bros store, Hunters Point Ave & Skillman St,, Long Island City, NY. The listed manufacture is Unagusta Manufacturing Co, Hazelwood, NC. These pieces have a mahogany finish. I'm guessing they were purchased between 1930 - 1940. Any suggestion/estimate on value range? Reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Unagusta Company seems to be a mistery based on the above messages. We inherited a piece with a label stating: " #26 American Walnut, Unagusta Manufacturing Co.". It is believed that the furniture is from the mid to late 1920's as other furniture from my grandparents have a similar time period. If anyone knows the history of the company or the furniture, please post it.
Thank you, Henk

Just bought six drawers dresser in maple, I believe, marked Forward Furniture by Unagusta. Drawer boxes are wood and dovetailed, think it's from the fifties, but top appears to be a veneer, and maybe not a wood veneer...anyone know about construction during mid to late fifties of streamlined pieces?
