Height 92", width 70", depth 21".
Comparables. Two similar German cupboards were sold at Sotheby's "Property from the Royal House of Hanover" sale on 10/5/2005. Lot #1402 has a near identical style to the frame, and lot 1401 shows a little different style. These lots can be seen at the following links:
Condition: The exterior is in excellent condition, but the back of the upper section was removed, and another board cut, in modern times (probably to fit a large TV for an entertainment center). The back will need to be replaced.
