I'm pretty sure this is a Victorian washstand? I found this piece out for trash in front of one of the old homes in Newtown, PA last May. I was shocked that people who live in an actual old home--I think the house dates around 1830, but can't swear to it--would just throw nice old furniture away! It had fallen apart a little, the joints were dry and had just loosened and came apart, wasn't actually "broken"., It was easy enough to just put it back together. It had a red candle wax stain and a white ring on the top, and the harp or whatever you call it that held the towel bar was missing, but overall the finish was very nice, I just cleaned it up and waxed it, and it's exactly what I wanted as a nightstand!
