What a wonderful and gorgeous piece this is with its luscious veneers, curvaceous cabriole legs, ornate hardware and carvings, mirrored interior back, beveled glass doors, and dovetailed drawers. It is presented in its original sturdy antique condition with its original finish and its ornate restored and repaired original hardware including one mismatched bale on a drawer handle. The top is separate from the base so could be used alone. We believe this cabinet to be circa 1850-1950. All its details, idiosyncrasies, and age-related distinctions combine to make this cabinet so very unique and one-of-a-kind with loads of patina and character. I can see it used in a dining room to display beautiful antique dishes, in the den or office holding leather-bound volumes by revered authors, or in the living room or bedroom displaying collections of tiny boxes or figurines. Use it for whatever your heart desires. Just make it yours.
