Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. There were no pictures that came with your question (the site has been having an issue).
Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures (again, if you already have) of the item and any marks, labels or writing.

If that is too much bother, you can email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'forCustomerin antiques' in the subject line.
Use the same email that you used when creating your account so that they will recognize you.
These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way (might be overnight).

Will you be able to add photos?

Expert:  rarewares replied 4 months ago.

Are they similar to any of these photos I have added?

A 1600's French corner cabinet is called an encoignure and during the 1600's

would have had ormolu (gilt brass) mounts and breche d-Alep pink marble tops.

A corner cabinet from this time period that is similar in any way to any of these I have added

would have a value of $10,000 to $12,000 each (usually made in pairs).

Some sites that I recommend are Varagesale.com, Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, Furnishly.com, Deconet.com, Lushpad, Krrb.com, and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit the submit button, thanks!
