Hello Robert,

I am trying to determine the style, age, and value of this piece of furniture. In fact, I am not even sure if it is actually a hutch? There are no markings of any kind. I think I have determined that it is quarter sawn oak, but that is about it. I can send additional photos if needed, but thought this would be a good start.

Cheers,
Art

this is the bottom half of a sideboard or buffet.  made around 1900 during the golden oak period.  there would have been a mirrored section above of which it was quite common for them to have been removed.

it would sell around the 600$ mark as shown.  possibly 750.

as to style, this is typical styling of the golden oak period.  victorian influence.

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.
