  4. very interesting. thanks for the knowledge fhrjr. Would be really cool to find one of those barrels of nails you speak of. I will keep an eye out, I am in NJ, but who knows.
  5. would it be terrible for me to pull a nail from the piece to check it out? the nails look like these: http://www.harpgallery.com/library/nails/square.JPG the first on the left, and the second ...
  6. zowie thanks for the comment! fhrjr thank you for the analysis! A thorough job as usual. I'd like to show you a close up of the corner of the door frame. I am going to change the last picture.

  8. the great thing about this piece, which made me fall in love immediately are the signs of usage. Like the top horizontal board, and the insides of the doors, which have worn down after decades and de...
  9. I am wondering what people think about the construction of the door frame.
  10. thanks agram! IMASapp, thanks for the observation. I am thinking early to mid 1800's, but not totally sure. Well see what others think. The patina is great on this one. Have you posted yours?

  26. Again I don't know if this is real, fake, a repro or an original. All I know is that it is very well made. A few things look extra suspect....the hardware and the side panels to name a few.
  27. lol! Yeah I was pretty upset about that too. More than anything it is a good piece for me to study. What kind of wood do you think this is fhrjr?? PS I found another Asian piece, smaller, but v...
