Hi Brandy,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
There's a chance this is circa 1830s-40s but I'd need to see a photo of the drawer pulled out so I can see how the dovetails are constructed to be certain.
If you'd like for your appraisal to include dimensions, which is customary, please forward in the comments section - at your convenience - the height, width and depth and I'll update this ASAP.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An American Empire walnut chest of drawers
New England, possibly 1830s-40s
The rectangular squared edged top with backsplash over a corresponding case fitted with an outset upper long drawer raised on engaged swelled colonettes flanking three recessed long drawers, all with circular wooden pulls, on turned inverted feet.
CONDITION: appears to be in generally good condition with wear commensurate to age and use.
PROVENANCE: inherited
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
