This is a early piece with it's original beveled glass on top and on bottom back. The shelfs are curved and the spindles are decorative . I Love the form of it . The wood has a dark reddish under tone to it . Not as heavy as walnut . It is about 5 feet tall . Has writing on back I can't make out . Interesting piece to display collections on it . Oh the bottom mirror is showing wood floor it is clear :-)

Thanks to Official I have a name and history dated 1839 on back it is a
étagère . I updated title . Many Thanks to Official !
An étagère is a piece of light furniture which was extensively made in France during the latter part of the 18th century. It consists of a series of stages or shelves for the reception of ornaments or other small articles. Like the what-not it was very often cornerwise in shape, and the best Louis XVI examples in exotic woods are exceedingly graceful and elegant.
