I need to know...

I need to know the value of a cherry Jackson Press, made in Tennessee around 1850. It has two drawers above a cupboard with two doors, two round-turned columns in front, and four round-turned feet. It's 45 inches tall and 41.5 inches wide; There is no hutch on top of it.

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The press has always been in my family and is in excellent condition. The drawers are put together with dove-tailing.
