“It was part of an inheritance that my late mother-in-law had gotten from her Uncle Roy," she said. "There were several pieces involved in that collection and it was just a beautiful piece.”

There was also paperwork detailing items in that inherited collection with outdated appraisals. Crawford-Farr posted photos of the item on a Lewis county Facebook page in early February, asking people to be on the lookout for it, but so far nothing.
She said the chest sold for $50 the day it was sold to the antique store and she's hoping whoever bought it will hear she's looking for it and sell it back to the family.
“It’s an item that I would really like to have back as part of the family collection,” Crawford-Farr said.
She says the buyer can reach her on the Lewis County Facebook page, Lewis County Free, Wanted and For Sale, or contact Timeless Treasures in Centralia.
