ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

Old oak bureau

I found an old oak bureau that is made without plywood. The drawer bottoms, the back of the bureau, and the back of the mirror are all made with wood, not plywood. When I was taking the mirror apart in order to strip the piece for refinishing, I noticed that the mirror was packed with straw.

Can anyone venture a guess as to the age of this piece? Is the straw packing unusual? Should I reconsider refinishing the bureau?

Thanks for your input.
