Ask an Appraisals Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, this is Mark with JA. I’ve been in the antiques and art business for nearly half a century. I think I can help with the chest. Can you send some pics? An overall shot, a close-up well-focused detail or two, one of the back or underside, and a good, clear shot of the maker’s marks or signatures, if any?
Photos should be attached to this thread. Here’s some help with sending files. Look for any of these links, depending on the device and browser you are using (see attachment). If that doesn’t work, try this link for more help: https://www.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert. If all else fails, try calling Customer Service at(###) ###-#### and they should be able to help. Also, if you’re using a smartphone, JustAnswer has a free phone app.
Got three photos. Appears to be the second three. None of the front, except for the drawer details. Can you send the others again, attached here?
I have some questions ahead of you. But I promise I won't lose you, OK?
Got all the photos. Back on it. Sorry for the wait. Checking now....
This chest is probably a bit more than 100 years old. Mid 19th century or so. Banded drawer inlays, cutout bracket base. Drawer pulls appear to be original, or at least correct for the period. Resale value £200-250.
Best of luck with it.
