What does this mean?

This is an antique,Victorian era, turn of the 19th to 20th century, about 1900, sideboard that is done in quarter sawn oak that is possibly English or American made. The upper half has display shelves with a beveled mirror back for reflecting light. The bottom half has 2 over 1 drawer over a 2-door cupboard that has affixed pressed oak 'carved' type elements on the doors with recessed oval centers. These were popular in homes around 1900 and could even be ordered from Sears & Roebuck's catalogues. The Victorian furniture market is currently slumped. Pieces, even the original period pieces, do not sell for what they used to sell for a few decades ago. The market was further impacted by the Recession. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.

Generally, auction houses consign items to offer for sale to bidders. For the most part, auction companies do not buy outright or direct from owners. Since it is a furniture piece, there are issues with the logistics of shipping and transport. You will want to try a local auction company or consignment shop in your area or try listing this for sale on your own through Craigslist or on a local for sale forum on facebook.
