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.
Width – 41″, 104 cm
Depth – 14″, 36 cm
Depth in Middle – 11.5″, 29 cm
Height – 78″, 198 cm
THIS IS SOLD NOW, BUT WE CAN MAKE ANOTHER ONE TO ORDER ANY SIZE.
