Antique Cabinet- Not Sure
Antique Cabinet- Not S  
Thank you for taking the time to review my request.  I would like information on the attached piece, such as: What is the correct name for this cabinet, time period, proper cleaning advise & the fair market value for re-sale.  I'm located in Lakeland, FL.  Many Thanks Mr. Klein!  ~ Rebecca

Answer
you have a belgium or english server--small sideboard or buffet--made around 1930.

the easiest way to make this more attractive is to use toluene free Briwax in a brown color and carefully and thoroughly wax the piece.

i do not know what things sell for in lakeland but here, in an import shop it would sell at 450 cleaned up and ready for a new home.

Expertise

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. robertsantiques@cox.net You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.

Experience

I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
