    The radial cut veneers on the back plywood indicate that this is a reproduction. Started seeing them in force in the 70s.

    Really? Wow thought it may be a little older with the discoloration of the mirror on top.

    The back may have been replaced. It looks c.1900 to me, mass-manufactured, catalog piece.The beveled glass is nice.

    Agree on later 20th century reproduction.

    I agree with Brad and Ghopper. They made this style for a very long time and similar pieces are very common here in the Midwest. Are there shelves with the piece? Value w/shelves and intact glass would be a right around $100 at auction since curio cabinets are a very hard sell these days.

    Yes there are shelves. These go for more at estate sales as i know they are making money for the family. Here they are on average priced at $350 and up depending on condition and details. Even in the antigue shops they can average $400 here. Not sure if they sell.

    Value is dependent on locality and selling venue. We could probably get a couple hundred at retail here in my Midwest location. Sounds like you might do better where you are.
