Hi Eli,

Before starting to read your note I viewed your photo and my first response was,
ah, vintage Drexel bedroom chest on chest. I guess it is that driftwood colored
finishes that gives it away.

The old Drexel furniture company was noted for making quality furniture with a
updated, stylized design, especially in the 1950's thru the 60"s.  While that
look found a following for the time period, it is not so sought after today.

In fact, today's buyers are shunning away from all traditional looks and pursuing
mid-fifties modern furniture, hence leaving pieces like your to go begging.

Your chest has a somewhat depressed value of perhaps $100 to $150. and your other
pieces, priced accordingly. Depending on your financial situation, perhaps making
a donation would be more practical than trying to find a buyer.

Best Wishes,
