Collectibles-General (Antiques)/Radio Cabinet?

This appears to be fairly old, but maybe at one time converted to a radio cabinet. Any thoughts on the age, original use and value?


looks to be a 1920s cabinet.  there were radio cabinets in this style and form but without eyes on examination I couldnt say if this was.

i would suggest you do something to the interior to make it more appealing to sell.  perhaps a glass shelf, mirror in the back and fabric on the sides.  a little time and very little money to enhance the piece.  After that ask 350.

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. 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.


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.
