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 bookcase is very similar to the other one on the web site, but a bit wider. It’s made with solid timbers & is beautifully constructed. 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. It has been hand ‘French Polished’ & so has a nice overall character.
THIS ACTUAL BOOKCASE WAS SOLD, BUT THERE IS ANOTHER ONE IN THE SHOP AT THE MOMENT WHICH IS THE SAME WIDTH BUT A BIT LOWER.
