Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

This appears to be from the mid-20th century, 1940-1970, but most likely 1950s.

There is most likely a makers mark or label on the piece. This is usually inside the left side of the top drawer, but could be in any drawer or inside the section with the sliding doors, or on the back. Is it possible to check? Mid-century furniture is very popular right now, but different makers are more valued than others.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
