Hello,

Thank you for your patience.

Your Lane Cedar chest was made on September 8, 1933.

It is done in a Jacobean Revival style.

On today's market, this could sell for $300 - $500.

Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.

Is that private party value? What would a dealer pay? I texted this. Why did I pay for texting?

I can cancel the offer for you.

The estimate is based on actual past auction sales of comparables. It is the range in which an auction bidder would generally spend on such an item.

A dealer would offer only about 10% - 30% of that estimate.
