HAND CARVED CURVED GLASS 19TH CENTURY CHINA CABINET – R. J. Horner or similar style

This piece has been in my family for over 100 years. It was given to my grandmother when she got married back in 1920 she was given this by her employer, who ran a upper-end furniture store near Pittsburgh. The store owners always considered my grandmother as family as they had no children, so the piece was always special to them as well as my grandparents.

When my grandfather died in 1981 the piece was handed down to me and I was informed that it had an appraised value of $6000.00 and was told it was from the late 19th century timeframe. I have no paperwork to back this up though, as that was almost 43 years ago and I was in the service when my grandfather passed.

As far as I know it is all original. I’m now in my 60s and I have no living children to pass it on to and I am looking on downsizing. I do not want to risk moving it again as I am nervous about damaging it. I’ve tried to match it up and the closest I came to it was a furniture maker called R. J. Horner, although there are no labels or brandings found on the piece. So many pieces out there has blocky and somewhat crude carvings, not this piece.

It has been a long and hard decision to try and sell this family piece, but I have come to the realization that it is time to let it become some other family’s heirloom. This measures about 63” tall and 46.25” wide.

$4500 – no checks please. The purchase does not include the contents on the shelves.
