Does any one know if this is an antique etagere, and how old it may be? I'm unable to find anything on the internet this looks close to this piece. I Would appreciate any help. Thank you, Kathy

It's not an etagere, which is open shelves.

From the little I can see, I would guess it's either British or European and approx. 1900-1910. Is it walnut?

RE: Need help identifying a piece of furniture

Looks like a sideboard to me, usually used in a DR, but I have a very large one in the foyer. It's a possibility it could even be the bottom portion of a hutch. I'm no expert but have been to many furniture auctions, and the piece looks French or Italian. It's a beautiful piece w/the carvings.

Can you post a picture of the whole thing?

In my opinion British sideboard late 1800's to early 1900's. Might be worth getting it apparaised looks in very good condition.
