Antique Bookcase, English Victorian Mahogany.
Large Victorian Mahogany bookcase imported from England and dating back to C.1850.
What an impressive piece this is. The front top of the base has a hinged lid and arched paneled double doors which open to reveal a storage cabinet with shelves.
Mounted on top is a display cabinet with arched, original wavy glass double doors which open to reveal adjustable wooden bookshelves. The inside back is lined with old Victorian style dark green paper which looks like fabric at first glance.
Acanthus and fruit hand carvings adorn the front corners of each door. The top is crowned with an elegant cornice and the whole thing stands on a frame with 4 chunky bun feed.
This truly is a magnificent piece which has developed a wonderful aged patina that only age can bring.
There is some splitting and wear which I have tried to show the worst of in the pictures and as you can see, it is these very flaws that give it the character and charm of a true antique. In no way do these flaws affect it's functionality and stability.
This piece does come apart in 3 pieces for easy transportation. Over all it is in solid, sturdy condition and ready to be used and loved once again.
Dimensions: width 48" at base, total height 91 1/2", depth 23 1/2" at base.
