Hepplewhite Chest of Drawers

Hepplewhite chests date back to the late 1700's through the early 1800's. This piece is of mahogany veneer with an inlay around the drawers. Look for dovetails on the drawers and champhered drawer bottoms. This piece has the original pulls and has been refinished. The refinishing cuts the value of this piece by a minimum of 50 percent. I appraised this piece for $1,700.
