My niece bought a 1910 house that had a "box" on either side

Customer Question

My niece bought a 1910 house that had a "box" on either side of a bedroom door that opened from the front and attached from the baseboard up about 24 inches of fancy cherry support. The box is about 6" by 10". Very nice but what could it be?

Hello,This is not something that is normally seen in a home of any age. These pieces are parts of a sideboard/buffet from the 1920's/30's. The piece of furniture was cut up (this was during the Depression, after all) and re-purposed as catch-all shelves on the inside of the room.
