My grandmother owned this cabinet and we are not sure if it has any antique/vintage collector value. It was made by Knechtel Furniture in Canada, at their Walkerton, ON plant, which apparently closed in 1934. Any information or opinions you might be able to provide would be appreciated.

Answer
It is a nice cabinet, china cabinet made around 1910-1920.  Cant tell the wood but usually these were stained like dark walnut from the factory.

with the original finish these sell at 650 in retail stores.  painted will sell for less.

not sure what you wanted to know so please ask.

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.
