Antique Birdseye Maple bedroom set (Westside Waterbury)

This set was made in NY in 1920 or slightly earlier. It consists of a full size bed with side boards, bureau and chifforette chest. My father-in-law received it on his 7th birthday in 1921. It has been in the family this entire time. Unfortunately, there is a round mark on the top of the bureau where a guest put a cup of cocoa. The mirror for same bureau was broken during its last move and unfortunately, one corner of the frame cracked (on the top left as you look at the picture). I believe it can be fixed with wood glue and a clamp which I will be trying this weekend. Or, if you are a woodworker, you might prefer to do it yourself. I would like this to go to another family who will treasure it and hopefully be able to pass it down through their family. I am also open to donation to a museum should you know one that would be interested. It is currently being stored in my garage, not the best place for pieces of this quality.
