QUESTION: I am sorry,I will try again.

Answer
Beautiful!!

Chippendale style with wonderful matched veneers on the faces.

glad i saw the picture since it looks to be 1920s early 30s and high quality.

going back through my notes i see that they actually started usin this lable, the metal one like an eye, in the 1929-30 period, then added another one later like this but with a pennant over the top then dropped it and just use the one you have.  i got confused until i saw the picture.

walnut veneer and burl walnut veneer.

in a shop it should price between 750-1000 depending on how the shop is oriented.
