This is a decorative piece. There are many repairs throughout, including replaced drawer facings, new reinforcements to the bottom of the drawers, and replaced brasses. The entirety has been refinished, and there appears to be evidence of a former top half, including wood plugs (The server may have once been the bottom portion to a bookcase).
