What does this mean?

Thanks very much, Lon, for letting me know about the inscriptions. If it were in a more permanent ink or stamp I might think it was a pattern or model name but that doesn't sound quite right. If you want this appraisal to include dimensions, please forward them to me (height, width, depth, in inches) and I'll update this but I do not need them to complete the appraisal. I will say that the crack in the side keeps the value down; it would be closer to $100-150 or $150-200 without the crack.

Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A mid-century maple youth's dresser
Unattributed maker, American, circa 1950
The rectangular rounded edged top over corresponding case fitted with two short flanking two stacked short drawers, over three long drawers, raised on bracket feet.
CONDITION: Not examined in person. Client represents this to be in mostly good condition, but with a crack on one side.
PROVENANCE: Client's mother bought it for his much older brother and it was handed down to client.
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.

No stamps on any drawers or the mirror. I looked all over to find out who the maker is and could not find any indication.

Someone appeared to have written in pencil "Emerson 441" on the mirror and "442" on the dresser.
