Question
Sheet Music Cabinet
Sheet Music Cabinet  
This cabinet was given to me and I am taking a guess that it is a sheet music cabinet.  Is that true?   It is in pretty good condition and I was wondering how much it is worth.

Thank you!

Rhonda

Answer
sorry that i only answered the question you asked.  i will try to hone my telepathy skills.  :)

1900-1920 era

==================================================
it is a sheet music cabinet, either mahogany or birch stained mahogany.  At auction I wuld have to give about 350, retail it would sell at 450 as shown.

this is a good one but it should not be set over the floor vent as it will cause damage to the wood.
