|Appraiser Comments:||Hello, Your signed "sculptured pine" with cedar lined drawers cowboy dresser was produced by Franklin Shockey Co., of Lexington, North Carolina, in the 1950's. This company was known for producing rustic and/or adirondack-style furniture. There is currently a dresser for sale that looks identical to yours at the following web site: belvairformodernliving.1stdibs.com/ They are retailing it for $1,600.00. Another style dresser was offered for sale through Miss Lynette's antiques in the range of $350.00. That is fairly low however. If you intend to keep the dresser, I would insure it for $1,500.00 at this time. If you intend to sell it, you should look into an online retro-style gallery or the gallery above to see if they would be interested in representing the piece. That way, you could get closer to a retail value than a "selling" value which can be a lot lower. Your dresser would probably sell for a bit less because of the scratches and visible wear. A good buy for $130.00 though. Regards, M|
