Hey Charlie,Thanks for sending over those photos. Did you see any maker's names or marks on the piece? Possibly in the drawers? Thanks,Frank

No Frank I can not find a blatant signature or mark. But may not really know what I am looking for.
Antique Expert: Frank, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 3 years ago
Thank you very much for your patience. After digging into some Fourth of July research I was able to prepare your evaluation.
Your sideboard would have been produced circa 1870-1880 from the photos the piece looks to be walnut with a mahogany stain. The upper portion of the piece has a carved crest with what appears to be a beveled mirror. The upper portion has a shallow shelf over two small drawers with carved vine decoration. There are 2 candle holder platforms above the small mirrors.
There appears to be a mottled marble top. In excellent condition you would be looking at a resale value of 1800-2200. In a retail antique shop the piece would be closer to 2800-3200USD in excellent condition.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your antique sideboard.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
Frank
