Could you please help me identify the style, age, and value of this cabinet?  Thank you!

Answer
empire style oak china cabinet made around 1900-1920s.

feet are called scroll feet as are the decorations scrolls on the outside pilasters.

these would sell at auction at 400 and in shops at 800-850, this is a nice one.  possibly would go to 12 0r 1400 depending on the store.

insurance replacement value would  be 2500.

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.
