Robert this is a follow-up from an email a while ago which did not provide good enough pictures for you to make your assessment at the time. I now have additional pictures and information as outlined below.

A full view picture is now available.

And I can also tell you that the drawer bottoms are chamfered. The dovetails are hand cut and exist on the front and back of the drawers.

Some small nails in the drawer sections (which no longer exist) were square head and square body.

The glass doors are a mystery to me. The one on the right appears original and the one on the left looks like a replacement.

Your assessment of age and style and market value would be appreciated. Thank you.

Gary

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.
