Product Description

Some of the most wonderful antiques are made from yew wood and have attractive feet. Here we have a wonderful example of that in this antique bookcase with glass doors.

Light Yew Wood

The wood used in this bookcase is yew and is quite sturdy. Dental molding at the top and subtle brass lock escutcheons serve to enhance the wood. Each of the three doors are comprised of “astragal” glazed glass. In other words, each of the thirteen panes in each door is an individual pane of glass painstakingly cut and glazed in place.

Antique Bookcase with Glass Doors

This bookcase originated in England. It dates back to around 1960. The doors of this bookcase lock with an included key. Inside are two adjustable shelves per section. These shelves adjust with a brass pin system and are about 9.25″ deep inside. A brass pin system system is a series of holes on all four corner of the bookcase that you insert brass pins into which the shelf rests on. The shelves are quite visible through the glass, making this bookcase a wonderful display piece.
The Queen Anne feet finish the bottom off nicely.

Condition

Overall the condition is very good. The doors and locks work well. The feet do not appear original to the piece, but fit perfectly. There are some general wear marks here and there. The only worth noting is a small mark near the bottom of the left side which we have included a picture of.
