Doyle New York is listing this unlabeled cabinet as being done in the manner of Herter Brothers, but I think that there is a chance that it was made in Baltimore by Thomas Godey. It reminds me of a labeled Godey cabinet that was sold in 2005 by Neal auction which I think was the cabinet from the High Museum of Art and was included in the book, Art & Enterprise on page 126.

The side panel patterns are identical in design and notice the ebonized trim on the three front panels, with the center one having a curved top trim and overhangs on two sides. If this isn’t by Godey, I think there would be a case for plagiarism.

They are expecting a range of $5,000 to $10,000 and are starting the bidding at $2,500. The labeled Godey cabinet below sold for $51,700.
