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.

Does the glass lift out and slide on the top? It looks very much like the book shelves made in late 1800's.
