Widdicomb "Sundra" bedroom set.... not Nakashima????
I have a cool-looking bedroom set that knew was well-made (being Widdicomb) but didn't believe to be worth much. We were going to let our teenage daughter use it, which ENSURES that it will get wrecked, have nail polish and oil paints spilled on it, etc. HOWEVER- we just noticed it's marked "Sundra". An exhaustive Google search turned up NO references to "Widdicomb Sundra" that do NOT credit Nakashima.
It doesn't LOOK like a Nakashima design. But the markings.... it's from 12/59. Laurel and Walnut with brass pulls. Same cloth label the Nakashima stuff has. Clearly, if it's Nakashima (or any design of note) we would not let it get wrecked in the teenager's room. So we're hoping someone can help us identify it!!

daughter may not know Nakashima from Nagasaki but she will probably be swooning over having 9 dresser drawers. Just tell her to "keep it in good condition because it may be worth something on ebay someday" and you're good to go.
