What does this mean?

Lovely Chinese kabinet with big drawers. Most likely made for export to the west. I believe its a late 19th early 20th century piece. Typical brass appliques and hinges and locks. From what I can see it looks like made from Zitan wood ( or Chinese Sandalwood, Pterocarpus santalinus ). These kabinets are best sold in a local auction house if you want to sell it. Problem with larger furniture is that on online platforms shipping costs are really high and therefor in most cases prices stay behind.
