Old 9 Graduated Drawers Spice Cupboard Chest

This is an old chest of drawers probably used to store spices. It is finished on the front in a dark walnut stain and on the top and sides with a lighter stain, This old 9 drawer spice cupboard or chest has the original knobs which are metal but they look and feel like wood, ( I used a magnet to find that they were indeed metal). and the two large drawers on the bottom have locks with key eustcheons (no keys). There are 4 smaller drawers across the top then three medium sized drawers in the middle. The chest measures 19 inches across the front 5 inches from front to back and 10 inches high. It is in very good used condition, The drawer edges have been glued together and dovetailed at the bottom and top. There is no back to this chest. Please email me for more pictures. I believe this piece is dated around the last of the 19th c to early 20th c.(the items atop the chest are decorations and not for sale.
