Ellen asks:

What can you tell me about this cabinet?

European Art Nouveu Side by Side Appraisal

AW says: This a piece from the Art Nouveau period. It’s circa 1910s-20s. It’s made out of oak and it’s European. Probably English. It’s what’s sometimes called a side by side cabinet. Or server. The mirror in the middle has beveled glass which is of very good quality and holds up well.

The grooves in the doors on either site, indicate that the piece is made of solid oak, rather than veneer. This is a good thing, as is the marble surface in the center of the piece.

Retail value: $1,750

Wholesale: $500 (The gap between retail & wholesale these days is significant due to the wholesale market being rather slow for antique furniture of this period.)

Thanks!
