that is correct.

Thank you, ***** ***** question, so I can give you a informed appraisal. Is this marked by a maker, or do you know who made this? Do you by chance have a date for this? Any information you have is very helpful

Where on the chest would I search for a manufacturer's mark?

Hello

It should be on the back or in one of the drawers if it is marked?

Looked at back of chest, inside and on the back of each drawer; found no maker's mark.

Thank you,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Antique Victorian Chest with Carved Pulls, circa: late 1800 to 1910, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $1***-**-****.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less, if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $1150.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $1150.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Offerup.com, Varagesale.com, Wanelo.com, www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com and letgo.com. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.

Did you see my similar question about a Victorian-era dresser, also with hand-carved leaf-design drawer pulls, and with a hand-carved mirror in addition? If so, did the photo of that come through?

Hello

No, I did not see that one. The one I answered here is this one " Victorian-era chest of drawers "

You must have asked that on a different question. If you did I am sure someone answered it for you.

The Victorian Dresser with Carved Wood Pulls, Kerosene lantern holders on the Mirror, has an estimated value of

$1***-**-****.00. You can sell this on several sites for pick up only. Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. There are some great sites you can sell from. You can also list this locally on Craigslist, in your area.
