Answer
1920s manufactured, American made, china cabinet in the jacobean style.

as to the make or manufacturer.  there were about 5000 in operation at the time so without a label no one can tell you which one.  it is not uncommon for items not to have been labeled or for the paper labels that were tacked on or glued on to be lost.

the wood is walnut and walnut veneer.  the frame is sweet gum and tulip poplar woods.

in a shop this would price at 500.
