    C3DF95EF-AC84-4B24-A6D8-B2E585A3B785.jpeg Hello,
    Is anyone familiar with who could have made this piece? It’s quite impressive and has an arched mirror on top. Thank you for guidance.

    Im guessing 1870s or so Rococo revival.The etched glass is stunning.Where are you located? I ask because I want to say it might be English.I could be wrong so wait for others. Its a lovely piece.

    Unfortunately, it’s currently in storage so I haven’t been able to put it together.

    Can't really place this but something about it is saying Belgian or German to me. Would agree with Johnny's dating assuming it is truly old. More pics are really necessary.

    The condition is too perfect for my liking. The hardware appears newer. My initial thought was that it is an extremely well made reproduction but I haven’t found anyone making a piece like it.

    If you can, get a close up of the glass etching/engraving. It looks Theresienthal. That would fit German. The glass is very good quality bevelled, which suggests some age to it.

    Lovely glass. And reinforces the German idea for me, thank you.

    JMHO
    if German then Biedermeier or Gründerzeit. but why would the Germans show a setter and not a shepherd ?
    if French then I'd search Napoleon III or deuxième empire.

    Fid, it's not a setter with that tail, they have feathery ones. Looks more like a Lab.

    I imagine the top case is just as elaborate - referred to as a Buffet a Deux Corps - would probably be Henry II style (20th) from Belgium

    Sorry if I misdirected my response. It was aimed at laura9797 for assistance provided. The top section belongs to the bottom I will include.
