      Yes it does, I love old woods, veneers etc. They always give you something back for any effort.

      So, do you know anything about this chest of drawers. Look at m profile picture. I'm almost certain we have the exact same thing. Please let m know what you know about them.

      Thank you!

      Gregory, you also have A bachelor chest very similar to mine! Bachelor chests are of English origin from the Georgian period. These were generally smaller pieces of furniture for young men to use that wouldn’t take up much space in dwellings. They generally started out making these with bun feet then graduating to Bracket feet. My chest is a reproduction probably from the 1930’s, though it had seen years of neglect, it had good bones. I like the small pull out shelf just below the top.

      You should take your chest to an appraiser to get more information about the piece.... it certainly has some lovely graining.
