Question
Chest
Chest  
I'm wondering if this is a good find for $75. What year might it be from?

Answer
1920-40s.

good buy if the condition is good.  It is Hepplewhite style cabinet in mahogany veneers.

in good condition in a shop it would price at 750-1000.

I see some damage at the center bottom and there may be a finale missing at the top between the arches.  they did not always have one but often did.
