In Response To: "new antique" (Robert Dawson)

First, the Egyptians veneered furniture over 2000 years ago so that is no indication of newness. Most common use of veneer as a regular method of furniture assembly really started about 1835 in the U.S. and took off around 1860. The glass could have been held in place in any number of ways and it could have been replaced once too. Any method of securing could have been used after the origin unless there is just one set of nail holes in the rabbit. As for spraying paint, Ford employed that on his cars way back when, as well I have seen adds for spray paint guns that dated prior to 1915, so this can still be a pretty old piece.
