This is an interesting chest… It seems to have been completely refinished on the front, top and sides (although there are scratches and minor damage to that finish), with newer drawer pulls added. However, if you look at the back and inside the drawers, you’ll see it’s actually a very old piece.
So, for us anyway, there’s a minor mystery. Why did the person who did the refinishing work stop where he or she did? Lack of interest? Ran out of time? Who knows…
In any event, it’s a nice little piece with one large upper drawer and two small side drawers, as well as cabinet space.
Note: My apologies for the poor quality of the photos. I’m not sure why they turned out so out of focus.
Condition: As shown in the pictures and described above. Structurally the chest is in very good condition.

Message re Our Products:
Most of the items we offer are vintage, antique or simply pre-owned. Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person.
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.
Also, please be aware that vintage and antique items are unlikely to be in factory condition, so if you aren’t used to buying antique or vintage items – and are in fact looking for a pristine, unused item – a new reproduction may be better suited for you.
We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value.
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
