We would like to sell this chest and are trying to determine it's value. What we know... it's solid wood (can see board edges on top, in drawers, on sides, etc.), has carving details, drawers are dovetail construction, unable to locate manufacturer name anywhere. Not sure on these things... what type of metal the handles are, if wood is mahogany. Thank you for your time!

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
