QUESTION: I purchased this in North Carolina at a antique store I got a heck of deal on it I only paid I think $199.00 for it may have been a little less then that The owner of the store said it was bought a estate sale and they told her they thought it was a 19th century reproduction I was going to buy it regardless cause its just a beautiful piece of furniture I'm just curious to know more about it and if It was a good deal and if there is any value Thank you again Robert
It is a nice piece, these sell high in new and resale furniture stores. They were correct that it is a reproduction but it is a 20th century reproduction of an 1850s european chest.
could be as late as 1970/80 but they still sell way higher than you paid. usually about 800-1200, higher in fancy stores.
