This chest is typical of the William and Mary period.
William III married The English Mary II at the end of the 17th century.
You'll also see similarities in furniture styles - like this chest.
Just like this chest, you can see English chests at the same time, with those panels with these diamond shapes.
Only the chests made in England are darker because the English patinated the wood darkly.
In the English furniture, that patina layer is so dominant that you can hardly see any or no wood grain.
See also the bobbin feet on the front. Restored but original.

Long forged hinges under the lid.
With document tray still on the inside.
