I was hoping that someone can help in determining the age of this cabinet and whether it is a Hutch or China cabinet. I know that there are ways to tell by looking at the hardware, wood and style it was made in, but I have no idea. It is beautiful piece of furniture that someone was going to let get demolished along with the house had we not rescued it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Well look inside at the shelfs, do they have a grove cut in the back? That way you can display some of the china. This china hutch or cabinet is the same thing. Looks to be around 1920-30 era. I have one almost like this. Dave

    On the back of the top two shelves there are two cut groves going across from one side to the other. It also has wheels/casters on the bottom of the legs ( forgot to add that in before) From having a similar piece to this one, do you have an idea on its value?

    The groves are for displaying china. Price? Mine I paid 30.00 at auction, retail I would say around 450.00 - 550.00 mark. Dave
