How Am I Supposed to Know??

Like I said in yesterday's post, I'm selling a silverware chest. We got it as a gift for our wedding 10 years ago, but we hadn't registered for it, or a set of silver. Sometimes, people are wacky. Anyway, we thought, hey, maybe we'll get silver some day. Yeah, well, it's been 10 years - still no silver. I am sick of the thing, and it's brand stinking new. So I'm selling it. Now, it's not like I'm an expert on silver chests. There is no information anywhere on the chest except the manufacturer's name, and the name of the store from which it was purchased. So I got this question:

Is the interior tarnish resistant felt?

How in the world would I know that? I've taken pictures from every angle, there's no booklet or tags in the pictures, and I make no mention of instructions, booklets, etc, included. I wanted to reply, "Uh, how do I tell??" Because, really, I state clearly that I've never once put a piece of silver in the thing. I sort of assume that all silver chests have tarnish resistant felt, right? It's made by Reed and Barton, who are silversmiths. Am I wrong to assume they would be worried about their own product tarnishing inside?

I was super nice, though, and just replied that I wasn't sure, but reiterated who made it, and that I assumed it was, but was not sure.

It nearly killed me to be so nice.
