Sadly Lane Chests and just about all "brown furniture" has lost favor with today's buyers and most of the chests sell for well under $150 when pristine. At the moment I cannot find a singe example of one like yours that has sold at any price, which is not surprising.

There are a few that are classic Mid Century Modern that are fetching in the $200 range, but that is a rarity.

Yours looks to be in nice shape, so $150 could be a starting point for you if you want to sell. The challenge is these are a supply and demand thing. Where I am there is a huge supply of them and the demand is very low.

Most likely you will have to keep lowering the price until the right person comes along. Selling these online is a nightmare as you have to do local pick up or freight shipping (which most people don't want to bother with). You could try to sell it at a yard sale or flea market or see if a consistent store will sell it for you--which will give you the most exposure. Not all take them as they are a hard sell and take up a lot of floor space, for a long time

Maybe where you are there is a much higher demand than where I am located in Pittsburgh.

Post back with an update!!
