Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a Lane Alta Vista cedar hope chest in good to fair condition. The style no. is 02221 and the serial no. is 949270. I looked up the chest on line and found out the serial no. is actually the date it was made. That would be July 29 1947. Any ball park figure I could get would be wonderful. I understand an estimate is not an iron clad price. Thank you

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

That is all I have now.
