QUESTION: Posting a second picture.  Hope this one is clearer.  Thank you.
Measurements are 54" wide; 18" deep; and 36" height.

Answer
this is sheraton style made around 1940.  as to wood identification, i cannot see the wood grain but usually these are mahogany veneers.  Retail in a store between 350-750 depending on eh condition, which i cannot see in the photos.

if the surfaces are good, drawers and doors work well and smooth, and the finish is original and smooth, figure the high end on the money

hope this is what you needed

thanks.
