The quality of this piece is remarkable. Patent number is under the lid. The construction is cabinet makers quality and has a Tiffany quality about it. The construction is amazing as seen in my photo of the lovely cabinet work.The velvet lining is original. Condition is remarkable for an antique chest. Tiger oak wood shows beautifully with original finish. Wood is in great shape with a couple minor dings from normal wear. All brass fittings are very nice with nice patina.

The cutlery compartments are also velvet covered wood and these compartments bear a separate patent number. The lid lifts very nicely with no movement and drawers slide nicely.
