Antique Victorian Mahogany Open Bookcase
This re-constructed antique mahogany bookcase has just been made to order for the CEO of Christies.
They had one made by us about 5 years ago & wanted another one to match for the same room. It’s been made to the same high quality standard as all our bespoke bookcases & the cabinet maker has used some antique mahogany in certain places to give it more character. The shelves are all adjustable on shark teeth supports & they have mahogany edges. It separates into 4 sections, top cornice, two middle sections & the plinth. As always these can be made to any size & adapted to any style you like. They can be all polished inside which looks very smart & can be done in most woods too. We normally tend to use new & old woods, because that’s the most cost effective way, however they can be made entirely out of new woods or mainly out of old woods, depending on your requirements & budgets. Please note this one is sold, but if you wish to order a similar of different model, they take about 4 weeks to make & polish. We normally have one or two examples of bespoke bookcases in our showroom, so you can get an idea of the quality.

Pair of Antique Georgian Mahogany Bedside Chests
Pair of antique Georgian mahogany bedside chests, with three drawers in each. They have crossbanded tops, brass handles & bracket feet. I believe they may have been reconstructed from a larger Georgian period chest of drawers at some time, but this is how I acquired them. They are in good condition, with a few minor markings to the polish.

Long Antique Upholstered Mahogany Stool
Large antique mahogany stool or window seat, with six turned mahogany legs. I believe the legs are Victorian. I obtained the stool already constructed & just had it re-upholstered. This stool would be really practicable at the end of a double bed, although it could have many other uses. It’s in lovely condition & beautifully upholstered.

Antique Victorian Mahogany Open Bookcase
This large antique mahogany open bookcase has been reconstructed from very old timbers taken off antique wardrobes, pianos, etc. I had a very similar piece ordered to size by a client who was very happy with it. In fact I liked it so much that I ordered one too, because it’s the sort of piece that everyone wants an original of, but won’t find. This is the next best thing. It’s made with solid timbers & is beautifully made. There are two separate compartments each with adjustable pine shelves, faced off in mahogany. In the corners are ‘shark tooth’ supports, just like the Victorian ones. The top cornice just lifts off, the middle separates into two sections, which lift off the plinth. This is a very practicable piece of furniture & will hold a lot of books. This bookcase has been hand ‘French Polished’ & so has a nice overall character.
PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE BUYING, BECAUSE THESE ARE INDIVIDUALLY MADE TO YOUR OWN REQUIREMENTS, WHICH WILL NEED TO BE DISCUSSED BEFORE ORDERING.
THIS ACTUAL BOOKCASE WAS SOLD, BUT I CAN TAKE ORDERS ON THIS OR ANY SIZE REQUIRED. THEY TAKE ABOUT 3-4 WEEKS TO MAKE. PRICE WILL DEPEND ON SIZE & WOOD USED. PRICE WILL DEPEND ON REQUIREMENTS.

Antique Victorian Burr Walnut Open Bookcase – One of a Pair, Handmade
Wonderful quality reconstructed antique Victorian bookcase. This is another example of the brilliant work of my cabinet makers. There are a matching pair of these bookcases, which have been made from the wood of a Victorian wardrobe, so they are one off’s. The design & dimensions can be repeated, but the wood will always differ. I am also selling these individually, so if you want the pair please let me know soon. Most of the wood is burr walnut veneer, which came from the wardrobe, with some figured walnut, also from the wardrobe on the sides. The veneers are stunning, with lovely figuring & a good original colour. The shelves are adjustable on shark teeth supports & they are stained pine with burr walnut front edges. The panelled back is stained pine which is tongue & grooved.
