Considering the style of this as Danish Modern, I would suggest the nitpicky detail that this is, more accurately, a teak chest with cedar lining. At least, in my experience, the veneers of the exteriors of this type are typically teak. The chest is most definitely not sheathed in cedar as I can see from the grain in the photos. Teak is more valuable then cedar and that may mean this is worth more than the seller or yourself may have realized. This type of modernist furniture is highly desirable by collectors and I hope you are able to find out more about this particular piece. I once purchased a similar piece for $30 from a junk dealer who didn't know any better. However, the Danish Modern style has ebbed and flowed in its favor and some of these pieces were being manufactured up until the 80's and perhaps beyond...
