This Victorian walnut marbletop chest belongs to a Northern Neck family with roots in the Midwest.  It is in excellent condition, and the family thinks that it is complete, showing no evidence of having had an attached mirror or splashboard.  The secondary wood is poplar.  The ends are paneled, and the finish is original.
