Bookcase.. French C 1890.


Impressive King wood library bookcase with ormolu and gilt wood mounts. This bookcase is French and dates to circa 1890 s. This bookcase has five substantial and adjustable shelves, with the benefit of a deep drawer in the base providing plenty of storage space. The door retains its original unblemished bevelled glass, with attractive gilt wood surrounds. There is a working key which fits both the door and the drawer below.   The back panels and drawer linings are all constructed of solid oak, as is the main carcass of this bookcase. The sides and front of the bookcase are veneered in King wood and retain a mellow antique patina. The cornice which sits atop this bookcase, is most attractive with gilt wood decorative features. This Bookcase is in exceptional condition, having been checked, refurbished and wax polished to show off the richness and beauty of the veneers. As with much French furniture, this bookcase is bolted together and re-assembling is straightforward. Dimensions 90" high. 45" wide. 22" deep
