I recently bought this piece at a yard sale. It has a round metal tag on the inside of the door that reads "Showers Furniture." There is a small amount of damage on the side of the lower left corner. Some of the finish is worn as shown in the second photo, but the wood underneath is good.
I'm happy with the purchase price of $100 but wondered if it was worth more.
Thank you for any information you can provide.

Hi Susan,

Without attempting to sound like a furniture snob, but Showers Furniture is furniture built
to a price,not to a standard, back in the day.

Today, there is a downward spiral of interest for furniture of this style since there is so
much finer furniture coming onto the secondary market, due to today's younger buyers that rather put there money in an IPhone and be content to sit on the floor, in a matter of speaking.

Based on what I see happening in this country, the value of your china cabinet may be worth
half of what you paid for it in a year or two.  But if you like it, that is all that counts. Clean it up and put it to use.

Best Wishes,
