I am very interested in learning more about the Showers Brothers and their furniture. II live in rural area of Nebraska. I inherited a bedroom set from my grandmother when I married in 1975. I do not know where my grandmother got the set. I know she did not purchase it new. The bedroom set consist of a beautiful vanity ( with a mirror that goes clear to the floor between the 2 sets of drawers), a five drawer dresser over 4ft. tall, the head board and foot board with slats. It is a dark wood. All of the pieces have the Showers Brothers stamp along with a number. There is a shipping label that says the set was sent to Michigan. Can you possibly tell me more about the furniture or where to find more information? I would appreciate any help. Thank you, glenda.cronin@gmail.com
