Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Vintage carved chests from China that are carved on all sides can sell for a high average of $500 - $700 on today's market.
