Repurposing - Again!

My dad has been "cleaning" out his house and giving me furniture pieces. I keep bringing them out here to Hometalk for suggestions on how to "fix" them up because my imagination seems to be limited when it comes to furniture!
I don't even know what this is; and please excuse the dust. The upper door opens downward and lies adjacent to the inner shelf (like having a desk top to pull a chair up to). I do have some vintage china I could display if I wanted to remove the door and just have 3 shelves. But honestly, I'm at a total loss with this piece. Any help out there?
