Customer Question

I have a corner stacked curio of mahogany with flower inlays up and down sides with a flower urn inlayed on upper portion.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the antiques appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: Both top and bottom sectioned have curved glass on front doors and side glass has double curves. Top and bottom sections are connected wth approx. 1..25 inch of mahogany tapered square doweled columns 12" curved glass front doors of upper and lower sections have double curved glass side panels. Middle section is open with mirrored back. Hard to describe
JA: What confuses you?
Customer: Have looked on line trying to find similar inlays without sucess
JA: Is there anything else the antiques appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Top and bottom sections also have mirrored glass backs. Exterior back of curio has separate sections of wood covering interior mirrors. This was given s a gift from an old friend and estimate to be 19th century?
