Hello! I purchased this china cabinet about 5 years ago in a small shop in North Carolina. We moved to Texas about 4 years ago, and ended up spending a lot of money to have this piece shipped to our new home. We're now re-doing my office with new floors, paint, etc- and the wife says the cabinet won't match so I have to get rid of it. Happy wife, happy life!
So before I reach out to anyone in my community who might be interested in buying it (assuming there is interest), I'd love to get some expert's thoughts on what it is, what era it's from, who could have made it, and what I should expect to receive for it.
From what I vaguely remember from the person I purchased it from (and I do mean vague), she said that she thought it was from the 1800's, quarter sawn oak, and maybe even fumed oak if that makes sense? I recall that the carving at the top of it could help identify the era but I could be wrong. We looked all over this piece for any type of marking that would be an indicator on who made the piece, but we were not able to find anything. I would say it's in extremely good condition with very few scratches.
Any insight is certainly appreciated!
This is a beautiful cabinet. I did look at sold cabinets with ornate carving as this piece has and they sold for over $3,000.
