I have a chest that looks like an antique,has legs, top drawer is divided into two sections,picture of George Washington stamped on inside of drawer with the Kindel name...wondering what the value is.thank you

Answer
Hi Angela,

Your Kindel mahogany chest is not an antique since it was most likely made in the 1940's.
To be referred to as an antique it must be 100 years old or older.

Based on the condition in the photo I would value the chest at $150. to $175.
