Pardon the dust! I became so excited, when I spotted another member, here, having a very similar chest-of-drawers, that I quickly snapped a few photos, while noticing I've neglected my dusting duties, lately...sorry! lol
Anyway, with the helpful info, of another collector, here, I would like to learn more, about this chest, if anyone has further news, to share about it.
When I bought it, the dealer said the chest was of, "Poor Boy", style. Each of the 4, dovetailed drawers, has a locking mechanism, but she didn't have the key. She also mentioned, that the solid wood types, were of, perhaps, birch and walnut. Honestly, I'm not sure.
Nevertheless, this is one of my favorite pieces...rock solid, and sturdy, with no apparent repairs or damage, [with the exception of a couple of drawer pulls, whose bases look just a tad bit different, from the rest].
