Description

All wood, approximately 6.5 feet tall, bottom piece being about 1 foot of it. About 2 feet wide and 1 foot deep. One drawer on the bottom and 5 on top. Metal handles that are falling apart a bit. Some chips and scrapes in the wood itself and the drawers are starting to become slightly askew. The drawers seem to be held on with metal sliders. Please let me know if more exact measurements are needed and/or more pictures or information.

Provenance

A friend gave it to me ~ 5 years ago who also owned it for about 5 years. He claims not to remember where he got it except that he paid ~ $400 for it. Not sure if he underpaid or overpaid or if that is the actual value. Also not sure the cost to fix it up.
