Can you tell me what style this is, along with wood identification, age and any other information you can discern. What monetary value would you affix to it if you saw it in an antique store? Thanks a lot.

Answer
nice!
wood is walnut, manufactured around 1870-80.  style is victorian renaissance revival with an eastlake influence.  

In a shop it would price at 650 on average but would range, depending on the type of store from 400-800.  If it is tight and does not have an undue wobble.
