Hello,My name isCustomerand I would love to help.Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the item and any marks, labels or writing.
The three photos are very helpful, but there is not a picture of the whole chest in the set of pictures.
I will wait for photos. I have contracted to answer for this item only in this question. If you have more items, you start a new question and put 'hiCustomer#39; if you wanted to get me again. I prefer one item per question to keep things organized.
The experts work FOR the site but not AT the site, so I am not connected to how orwhat you are charged. That is a question I am unable to answer because I am only given your name, questionand nothing else. There should be a customer support link on the bottom of your page and that would be the best way to find out.
The West Branch Novelty Co. of Milton, Pennsylvania offered several dozen blanket chests.Prices ranged from $40 to $80 back then and were often wedding or graduation gifts from parents to their children.As the 1920s ended, cedar chests generally stood on small turned legs and had plain inscribed lines.In the early 1930s, cedar chests had turned legs or bun feet and overlay veneers like yours does, soI would date your chest to a bit after 1930. Imagine that this was made during the Great Depression in America,what a time in America's history.
Your chest is missing some veneer on the sides and the obvious and expected signs of age.This piece has a current value of $300 to $400.00.

No, you should sell it the way that it is.
Since this is an informal, informational website, there is no official thing that I can offer you from the site.
You can, however, copy and paste what I wrote into Notepad, Microsoft Word or what ever program is most comfortable for you
so that you can print that out in order to help sell the item.
