Yes, thank you for the images. May I please know what information, specifically you are seeking on this family heirloom piece?
You have a hand made vernacular side table wash stand was made in circa 1840 - 1850. Generally these very utilitarian pieces were made by the original home or farmstead owner or by one of the people involved with the property. Sometimes if you pull the drawer out or look around, there is a pencil signature on the piece - sometimes. So, where it was made boils down the provenance, or history of prior ownership that you have detailed. The high value is $350 - $450. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $600.
Just checking in to see if you viewed your answer and if you are seeking further assistance?
Please let me know.
It does appear like walnut, although it has a secondary wood too that is possibly a hard pinewood. With the dark staining on the body that differs from the drawer front, it is a bit of a challenge to definitively determine the wood without personal inspection by me.
