I was just given what i was told to be a piece of Ethan Allen furniture. I have just spent HOURS trying to find it but i have a feeling that it is two separate pieces that they put together.The attached picture is VERY close BUT.
...the hinges are different and the top piece has two drawers at the top. There are what looks like a place to hang wine glasses( but none of mine will fit) there are groves in the back that looks like you should put plates but again plates don't fit.The main drawer on the base has been slotted on one side and green felt layed. and the cabinet has one shelf in it.Also the sides of the sideboard? have drop leaves.....There is no Ethan Allen mark any where only a 371 on the bottom and a 37? on the top. Everything else seems to be right..the machined dovetailing, the construction, style, material, pulls and knobs, and color all seem to fit in the heirloom style but i can not find either piece online. I just want to know if it is possible that this is EA or a knock off. This is my first piece of "good" furniture and even if its not EA i dont care. It will still be loved and brought back to life as its solid and well frankly i have never owned anything better then Walmart wannabees LOL. She stated that it was her mothers....would put it in the 60's witch does fit with the time but i CANNOT find a EA mark...any thoughts and any tips on taking a SOUND piece of furniture and bringing the life back in her, very little marking BUT the finish is well i would say it needs to be sanded and redone.....Thank you so much,

Is the picture you posted YOUR piece, or a close comparison you found online?

a very close representation the top is wrong. mine only has two tears and there are two drawers at the top ( normal person could not see in them) and there are drop leaves on the sides.
