Question
front

wondering what you could tell me about this highboy. I bought it from an estate sale several years ago and wanted to know what era it was from and an estimated value.

Answer
Is there a factory logo inside one of the drawers?
The back looks like masonite in the picture, is that correct?

could you take another picture of the outside of the side of a drawer where the side meets the front so i can see the joinery?

use the followup function to post another picture.  also a picture close up and clear of the wood grain in the drawer front.

thanks
