Hi. Wondering what you could tell us about this armoire/closet. Not sure if "Arts & Crafts" is the correct term. If not, what period do you think it's from, and the approximated value? Thanks so much.

Answer
not arts and crafts, but is a european, belguim or the uk, armoire.

made in the 1930s in a mix of styling with hepplewhite being the dominant style.

it is missing the crown that would be on top
would sell in a store at 250$.

check in import shops and you will find similar pieces.

pics are not close enough to see wood grain so I cannot tell you the species but if you use the followup function and post a clear close pic i might can help there.

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.
