    I'm not 100% if this is antique... probably vintage maybe? I don't know exactly what it is.
    It looks like it is actually made of wood, with metal added to the exterior.
    The metal looks to be handmade/ stamped?
    Measures: 13" H by 8.5" W. It can sit upright on it's own or it does have a heavy wire to hang. The cabinet is Heavy too. There is a mirror that can't be clean (assuming the streaks are glue from being glued to the back) Very well decorated from sides to door.
    Black velvet is glued to the interior. I think it's a religious devotional type cabinet, but not really sure. My grandmother had something slightly similar many years ago and she use it to put religious statues in. BUT I don't know if this is a Hispanic, Asian or what culture.
    Any help with this would be appreciated. THANK YOU

      Wow, Beautiful. First thing that came to mind... A tabernacle. But too small and most were of precious metal. I believe you're right in assuming a devotional. It really is beautiful.
