Some of the most wonderful antiques are made from mahogany and have attractive mouldings. Here we have a wonderful example of that in this antique bookcase with glass doors.
The wood used in this bookcase is mahogany and is quite sturdy. Intricate brass ormolu adorns the piece in several areas. These decorations are a beautiful contrast to the dark wood. The two glass doors are fitted with single panes of very clear glass.
Antique Bookcase with Glass Doors
This bookcase originated in Europe. It dates back to around 1960. The doors of this bookcase lock with an included key. Inside are four adjustable shelves per section. These shelves adjust with a brass pin system and are about 12″ 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 panther feet are fitted with antique casters.
Overall the condition is very good. The doors and locks work well. The shelves do not appear original to the piece, but fit perfectly. There are some marks on the very top which you wouldn’t normally see. There are a few other wear marks here and there but nothing that detracts from the bookcase.
