Antique Re-Constructed Burr Walnut Open Bookcase
This bookcase has been reconstructed from antique wardrobes, pianos, etc.
Antique Victorian reconstructed burr walnut open bookcase, in good condition & of lovely proportions. This piece has been reconstructed using old wood where possible & top quality European burr walnut veneers. It has all the features of the Victorian models, with the shark teeth supports for the adjustable shelves, carved corbels, a plinth base & a bold detachable cornice. It has all been French Polished & has lots of character. The main difference between this one & all the previous ones we have made, is the inside. The inside back & sides have been veneered in figured walnut & polished. This is a far more expensive way of doing them, because we usually have the insides just stained like the Victorian ones were. I thought this would look much smarter & could be used for other things besides books. Also, it's large than the previous ones.

Pair of Antique Chippendale Style Leather Wing Armchairs (Customizable Upon Request)£2,250.00 + VAT
Very comfortable pair of antique Chippendale style leather wing armchairs. They have been completely re-upholstered with coil springs, feather cushions, while the leather has been hand coloured & antiqued. These armchairs have generous proportions & sit on mahogany legs with cross stretchers, which give them more stability. Please don’t confuse these with the mass produced pre-dyed models out there. These are full of character, will last a lifetime & the finish on the leather will improve with age. I have just bought a load of these wing chairs from a large hotel chain who were refurbishing, so I have many more pairs in store, ready to polish & re-upholster. There is one more pair on my web site that are a different colour & not deep buttoned. However, I have many more waiting to be covered in any colour or format needed. If you want them with basic hand colouring without the leather being antiqued, they can be bought for about £400 less. Personally, I think it’s worth going the extra mile with these, because they look antique, with loads of character & the colour will improve with age. All the models are hand tacked & have coil springs inside, so they will last a lifetime. It’s important that you enlarge all the images to appreciate the detail & colouring. This pair are a kind of chestnut colour. The other pair on the web site are more of a cognac colour.

Pair of Antique Victorian Pollard Oak Bedside Chests£1,100.00 + VAT
This pair of antique Victorian bedside chests are truly one offs & they have been adapted from a pair of Victorian desk pedestals, so the carcasses are original. They are veneered in pollard oak & are cross banded on the tops, plus on the sides. These chests are bow fronted, with turned oak bun handles & sit on flat bun feet. They are very rare items & can't be repeated. I don't think they will hang around for long either.

Bespoke Antique Burr Walnut Open Bookcase£1,850.00 + VAT
This magnificent large open bookcase has just been constructed by a master craftsman. He has used top quality European burr walnut veneers on the front & figured walnut on the sides & insides. As you probably know, we have made many of these in the past, normally made to order in any wood, size or configuration. I need to have a few examples on the site & in the shop, so people can see the quality. I did have one or two different bookcase left in the shop, but I thought I would have something different made. This bookcase has two compartments with adjustable shelves on shark teeth supports. The main difference between this one & the others, is that the inside back & sides are polished walnut veneers, which give it a smarter look. We normally have the inside ochred like they were in the original Victorian ones, which is fine if you are only going to use it for books. Having a polished veneered interior means you don't have to put just book in it. This way, does cost quite a bit more to produce, because there is a lot more polishing involved. Anyway, take a good enlarged look at all the images to appreciate the quality.

Antique Bespoke Victorian Style Mahogany Open Bookcase
This is a bespoke Victorian style mahogany open bookcase, which has been hand made by a master craftsman. Those of you who are familiar with my web site will recognize this model, because we have had many similar ones in the past in different woods & sizes. Most people just order them to their required specifications. We can have them made in any wood or any style or any size. They do take about 2-4 weeks to make & polish. If you are able, please come to the shop to view this bookcase & other models to see the quality. They all have the adjustable shelves on sharks teeth supports & the larger ones can be made to come apart. Please don't compare these bookcases to other ones out there in the market. The ones we make are better made than the original Victorian ones & they are hand French polished too. If you go to the re-constructed furniture category, you will see quite a few items we have had made or adapted in the past. We can use antique timbers in the right places to give even more character. The prices have risen a bit over the many years we have been doing these bookcases & I have struggled to keep the price under £1000, but the cost of materials & the work has now forced us a bit over that price, however they are still very reasonable for the quality of workmanship.
