Old 1920,s I think Grebe cabinet. This thing was pretty messed up so dark you could not see the wood grain. The front bakelite panel also was very dark and dirty, I polished it and know you can see the swirl pattern. The cabinet turned out well.

I didn't know that, all I did was clean them soap and water. Not much gold on them now, must have came off during the years.
