Hi again Robert,  One more question for you.  this is a small knick knack shelf that was a great grand mothers,  I believe.  
Can you tell me what you think of this unit and it's value?  

thank you again

Eric

Answer
not sure what you want to know.

i cannot see the wood grain but it is probably in birch wood.  it is a really nice rack in the eastlake style from around 1890.

would sell in a store at around 500 in a shop cleaned and waxed.  a good shop not a flea market.

If i were to see this at 250 i would probably buy it, depending on my mood, knowing i could make a couple of hundred on it.

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.
