Victorian Eastlake/Empire Crest for Bookcase or Secretary

Offfered for auction is this very nice Eastlake/Empire crest for a bookcase or secretary. A nice salvage find, ca. 1860-1880. Original finish. Some chips and a few splits to the base, but do not affect use at all.
Measures approximately 44 1/2" long at the top, 42" where the bottom would meet the base. About 7 1/2" tall.
Please refer to the photographs as they are an important part of the overall description. Please ask any and all questions prior to bidding as all sales are final. Please note that all the items I sell, unless otherwise stated, are antique or vintage. As such, they have signs of wear which I do not consider imperfections. I make every effort to be accurate in describing any major issues with a piece, however, I do not consider signs of use or age appropriate wear to be defects. If you are looking for like-new items, then my items are probably not for you.
I accept Paypal. Payment is expected within three days of auction close (unless prior arrangements have made prior to auction close). Thanks for looking.
