What does this mean?

Hi Kurt,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The upper cabinet section could be 18th Century (and I've appraised it as 18th Century) and would likely have sat on a different looking base. The frame it now sits on looks later, 19th century at the earliest.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A late Chippendale mahogany glazed cabinet on stand
Cabinet possibly late 18th Century; frame 19th or 20th Century
In two sections, the upper with broken swan's neck pediment flanking a central finial plinth (possibly lacking a central finial) over two glazed (glass) and mullioned cabinet doors opening to a shelved interior, on a separate frame raised on short cabriole legs ending in carved paw feet.
overall height 52 inches; width 42 inches; depth 18 inches
CONDITION: top and base associated. According to client, this needs some work on the trim. Skeleton key broken off. Back needs to be re-nailed.
PROVENANCE: acquired in Virginia
