Hello,
We purchased this large walnut bookcase/cabinet recently.  It measures 111.5" tall, 81" wide, and 24" deep.  The original glass (?) has been replaced with "chicken wire".  The main shelves are ebonized oak.  The main carvings include a grouse/pheasant, flowers, and walnuts.  The base cabinet is curved at either end.  Thank you very much for any advice on its age and value.
Sincerely,
Chris & Jennifer
