Antique Satinwood Bookcase by Howard & Sons

Item Description

This satinwood breakfront dwarf bookcase was made by 'Howard & Sons' of London, so of course it's of the finest quality. Their label is on the back & so is their stamp impressed into the wood next to it (see images). It's in excellent original condition & I would date it to around the 1910 period. The shelves are all adjustable & the inside is lined with fabric, so although this was probably designed as a bookcase, it could easily be used as a display cabinet. Please enlarge all the images to see the all the beautiful hand painted details, which are a work of art in themselves. There are abundant floral details, neoclassical details & many colours including gilt work too. The wood is predominately satinwood & my polisher thinks the mouldings are olive wood. This cabinet has lovely small proportions & there are so many intricate details that you need to enlarge all the images to appreciate them. I particularly like the the quality of the painted flowers & the curved fluted columns topped with the acanthus leaf decoration.

Width – 60 inches, 153 cm
