Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
May I know how you came to the attribution that this is a Spanish 18th century piece?
At your convenience, please send a clear, in-focus close-up of a corner of a drawer so I can see the joinery as well as a view with the top opened out.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:
I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.

Thanks Nora, appreciate your response. I will follow your direction and prepare some photo's for your review. Would you give me an email address or phone# ***** I can text or email these photo's directly from my Iphone? Perhaps after you review the photos we could speak on the phone? I will get these photo's to you Monday. Thanks again. Norm

Hi, Thank you for the heads-up on emailing images. I will certainly let you know when they have arrived to me. In the meantime, be on the look-out for a confirmation email from customer service confirming they have received your images and will forward to me. Sincerely, Nora

I have recieved an automated email confirming receipt of email, no confirmation of forwarding to you.

It can take up to a day for me to receive the forward, depending on how much is in the queue ahead of you.
