Another rescued item. It has wood wheels/casters. I even have the key to the lock.  It looks to be oak. Glass is all in great shape.  Trying to get any info you think you can give on this item.  No maker's marks anywhere that I can see. Any info would be appreciated.

Answer
probably oak but cant see the grain well.  Most are.

made around 1900-1920.  this one would sell around 550-600 easily in a shop after you wax it.  use a wax like briwax or johnsons floor paste wax. neither have mineral oil or silicone oil which is a good thing.  wax will work as a cleaner, use wax sparingly dont butter it on.

good find!!!

depending on where you are it might go higher.

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.
