Google translate failed me on this one, I always call it a "Kommode" whether in German or English. Google said "chest of drawers," but I knew that wasn't right. I believe "sideboard" would be more accurate.
I would hate to dissuade you if you like it and sew. You're right though, if they know how to market it, they might know it's not worth it. Like I said, I'm happy to buy furniture that lacks value but is well made/interesting, but if it's for a flip, be wary.
I don't particular care for it. I just like to buy things that I can use and sell when I get tired of them for at or over what I paid. Pass it is. Regarding kommode, perhaps night stand? A small table with drawers that goes next to your bed.
