Did you receive all the pictures?

This is a French Renaissance style carved buffet/sideboard

made circa 1870-1890 in the US, exact maker unknown. The No.602

on the back indicates that it was made in the US because

European furniture makers did not use the word Number or abbreviated No. inventory/numbering

as inner-factory marks.

This buffet has a current value of $3000 to $3750 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling on your own are

www.loveseat.com (in CA), Layerhome.com, Pamono.com, Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local),
Chairish.com, Ioffer.com, Furnishly.com, Deconet.com, Lushpad, Krrb.com, and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
They do all of the work and you get a check 14 to 45 days after the sale minus their 15% to 25% (negotiable!) commission.

Ok...could the maker be Lyons?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
This was purchased at an estate sale in West Virginia for $150 believe it or not

What a great buy!

The maker would not be Lyons.

Please do click the stars now for this one, it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.

Ok..is there a way or any other indicator to find out who made this?...

No, I'm afraid that with furniture from this period there were

so many makers creating similar styles that there is no reference

or database to know exactly who made the piece. Large pieces rarely travel

far, so it is likely the piece was made within the few states around West Virginia,

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania being one of the cities that had many furniture factories in the late 1800's.
