This is a beautifully veneered pre-war case, with walnut, zebrawood, nicely flamed walnut, and shaped bun feet, all real veneer.
Many of these tall consoles have some degree of faux finishing or some variation on what the enthusiasts call "rep-wood".
The owner picked this one up 20 years ago at an auction, and now wants to see it as intended.
I studied some books and pictures online to approximate the original color.
It's a looker.
