I have been trying to learn as much as I can about antiques since I have developed an appreciation for things that aren't' made the way they used to be. :) I appreciate the help I've gotten from this forum. Thanks!
Here's another item of mine that I have questions about. It's a Secretary from the late 1800's. It has Knapp joints so from what I have researched it would have been made between 1871-1900. What I would like to know is would it be considered Renaissance Revival or Eastlake? I was leaning to Renaissance Revival because of the knights within the hardware. Secondly, is it walnut, the favored wood of the Renaissance Revival, or mahogany? I may have to spend sometime developing an eye for wood types. Funny how something so simple is what alludes me most.
It also separates into 3 pieces.
I appreciate any help.
