We have a kind of welsh dresser that my wife's mother is looking to sell as she lives abroad now. It dates back to the 17th century i believe and was wondering if anyone had seen anything like it before. Its solid and dimensions are width 1840mm height 2030mm depth 540mm.
It has markings on the front RII.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
I have more photos if needed.

Looks more like early 1900's and even possibly as late as the 1970's.

Furniture remakes are quite common and even moreso back in the mid 20th century.

Look for wood markings under the cabinet, behund the doors or on the back. You should find some type of marking made by it's creator, whether it is recent or very old.
