Quarter sawn tiger oak side by side china cabinet. On the left hand side, it features two drawers, a double door cabinet with one shelf, a table top, and a flying rounded cabinet with curved glass door and walls and a mirrored back. On the right hand side, there's a curved glass cabinet door with removable shelves inside, glass walls, and a wood back. According to the previous owner, above this left side cabinet there was at one time a half mirror attached to the back but it has since broken off and been lost. In two places on this cabinet, there is a carved signature reading "LK". There have not been any stamps or other markings observed. It stands 5' 8.5" tall, 4' 7" wide, and 22" deep.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The "LK" is a later inscription and probably indicates the initials of an earlier owner; it does not indicate maker.
