Wanting to know if this is vintage or antique? Possible value range and any helpful info

Answer
by definition it is not antique but dont worry with that too much.  antique and collectible is a better phrasing.  Antique furniture is generally thought of as 100 years old.  

the wardrobe is of European origins, the UK or Belgium most likely  and from the 1930s selling in shops at 350-450.

hope this is what you wanted.
thanks

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.
