Hi,
Thank you for your patience and my apologies for the delay, I had family visiting from out of town.
At your convenience, please provide clear, in-focus, close-up images of the corners of a drawer so I can see the joinery.
As well, can you please provide links to others that you have found for higher prices and lesser fine condition?

Ill work on that Nora.BTW, while I have located some bow front chests that are similar to this chest, this chest is pretty unique in that it has three drawers across the top, not the traditional 1 or 2 top drawer configuration.

Great, thanks!

Nora,
Here are some more pictures, including a side shot of the drawers and their joinery. Also, here are some miscellaneous links advertising bow front chest for sale. I can't find any bow front chest with 3 top drawers across. Would that possibly make this chest more valuable?Thanks

Hi,
I went through the photos -At your convenience, please provide clear, in-focus, close-up images of just one of the corners of a drawer so I can see the joinery.
