  7. scott, I hear you. I am 33 year old, ALL of my friends buy that kind of stuff, and they are surprised when a chair from IKEA breaks in three months. It is crazy how much money new junk costs. The p...
  8. scottvez, how do you think my dating estimate is 1840ish?
  9. You are correct scott, two pieces on the back, looks like the top and sides are one piece as well. thanks for chiming in. thanks to roycroft, agram, mike, and blunder for the loves.
  10. The third image shows the where the feet are connected from the inside, if I was not clear sorry.
  11. Surely, scottvez, I will do that now and add the link. I was finally able to get the time to bring it in and snap some pics. I will also get a shot of one of the nails. Thanks for the kind words!
  12. Patsea, I do not see any other markings, but I am sure you've correctly id'd it. I bought it hoping it was American, these things came to America back in the day and they were sometimes hard to tell ...
  13. thanks patsea, southcop, and geo for the loves
  14. Here an old hope chest made ??of solid oak is offered . Dimensions : L : 132 cm H : 72 cm D: 57 cm They probably dates from the first half of the 19th century , (estimated without warranty ) , so is...
  15. PatSea, wow, excellent work, well done and thank you!!! I knew it was a sea chest, and I had a feeling it wasn't American. Now I will have to work on translating this page. Thanks so much!

  20. always VERY grateful fhrjr, thank you! zowie thanks for the comment!
  21. fhr, I do have a question, what does this ring like that when I flick it? It is because the iron is extra hard? I've never heard metal rink like this before.

  24. blunder, I know! Sorry to disappoint, As soon as I took them I knew they weren't up to par.
  25. hey scott thanks for chiming in, to answer your questions: no, the base is very thin, not similar to the top. The back boards do extend above the top. The back boards are made of two very wide p...

  27. thanks for the comment and love fhrjr,

  29. manikin, agh and kyratango thanks for the loves!
  30. I believe this piece had some major work done to it, which is why it is in such good solid shape today.
  31. Scott, Yes you are exactly on point, this is what had me confused. These must be new brasses. There is an old hold in the middle with some type of wooden dowel still embedded. There are two new scr...
