Hi, I was given this chest on chest from family. I believe it is a 1940's piece. The back is stamped with the number 1801. I haven't had any luck on the internet searching this piece. I would appreciate any information. It's manufactured by Hickory Manuf. Co. Thanks in advance for your expertise. :)

Answer
it is 1940s and in excellent condition.  Mahogany veneers and would sell in a shop at 3-400$

there is a lot of info on the company online, too much to show here.  they did build quality pieces.

number is an inventory or catalog number.  good hardware on it as well.

Expertise

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. robertsantiques@cox.net 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.

Experience

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.
