I have this table. I have been looking at side tables, stretcher, library, and sofa. I can't find it or anything about it. Could someone please help with identifying this as it is driving me mad. I have looked at thousands.
If you have historical residences in your area the docents will be well versed in furniture styles and types. You might also want to send a pic to some national sites such as Mount Vernon. If your library system has a history collection there might be one of these tables around some place and the docents will know what it is.
I know nothing about it, but it's beautiful, and I hope you don't do anything hideous to it, like painting it, or taking it apart to make something else out of it. It breaks my heart to see some of the awful things people do to nice furniture on some of the DIY sites.
Sorry, I know nothing either but agree with Pixiedust - it's beautiful.

The table is beautiful and I recently had a similar issue with a table in my house. I really just searched through pics to find my answer. The tables I found most similar to yours were when I searched "antique Victorian rosewood side table". Hope this helps!

I assume the glass doors lift up?
It almost looks like something you could roll around and serve desserts from like for a nursing home? That is all I could think of. I hope that helps.
It might be a book case...can't really tell. Maybe from a law office?
I'm with Halfwit - this looks like a homemade 'barrister's bookcase'. If it is, the lift-up doors should slide into the upper part of the case so the attorney could easily access a specific section of his personal law library whilst preparing a case:
As for era, it looks to be a fairly modern construction of salvaged parts from various eras anywhere from late 19th to mid-20th century. I say this because of the modern looking fixings on the glass (?) - if the doors are the plexiglass they look in the photo, that is also a clue to date of creation.

I think is is beautiful, wish it was mine. ;)
I beleve it is a European Shrunk, most likely
German or Bavarian. They used this type of
over sized storage instead of cabinets or closets.
