Cool chest! I love chests and trunks. Lane cedar chests in beautiful condition go for about $100 in my area. I just sold mine that needed to be refinished and I had a hard time getting $25. And I am close to major cities. I think they are great, solid pices of furniture that are really awesome for storing all kinds of things. Unfortunately, yours is "waterfall" style (I believe) and it doesn't fit into people's decor very well today. I'd say to start at $50 if you decide sell it. Or, if you keep it, get 'er refinished and it will look brand new again. This is one of those styles that doesn't look very good all beat up/shabby chic style. Won't look good painted either. Good luck!
