I have no ideal how old this beauty is, she was purchased from a 2nd hand store by a 80 yr old grandmother when she was just married. It has keyholes and a screen bottom. No metal for sliding drawers, all wood. Looks like big flat head nails to holds in drawers the dovetail detail in drawers is unlike I have ever seen and the bottom of the drawers are single pieces of wood instead of one big sheet.

    Actually that looks like a pin and cove dovetail joint. They were common in Eastlake pieces. That type dovetail is very telling and was only used from 1890 until 1900 by Eastlake. The bad part is this doesn't look like one of their joints.
