Hi. Have attached photos. The damage is to the right hand glass door. I have the strips of wood, the broken glass and an intact section of glass set in wood surround. There would have been an upper section to this cabinet as there are holes on the surface which don't show up in photos! Hope this helps..

Thank you for the pictures.

This W. Gifford 1879 rosewood sideboard has a current value of about £150 in this condition.

Some sites that I recommend are,,,, Lushpad,, and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them, which is probably best with a piece of furniture like this.
