Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.
On a first look, I would not date this to the 1800s...may I ask why you believe it is 200 years old? That information may help me place it further.
I do see that, but my feeling is that it's late 19th century at the earliest, but most likely closer to the 1920s. I'll opt out and let another expert weigh in.
