Value of a Lane Cedar Chest?

Value of a Lane Cedar Chest - chest with painted design on frontI live in Australia and have just acquired this old chest. It has the Lane logo and a series number, but I can't quite tell if it's authentic and when it might have been made. Can anyone help?

It looks authentic. If there is a serial number, read it backwards and that will give you the month, day and year.

You have a beautiful piece. I have never heard of Lane being forged, at least not in the US. Have you heard of it where you are?

Here is some history on the brand:

I couldn't find this article yesterday, but it is an important read if you are trying to determine if a piece is real or a fake:

I like how the writer talks about looking at planing, finding the new nails in an old piece and inconsistencies in color.

The last thing I was looking for and still can't find is my source for old Lane advertising to see if your piece was advertised. I will keep searching for that info and if I find it, I will post back!

I would hope yours is real! It is quite lovely.
