Here we have a great antique bookshelf that was crafted around 1960 in Belgium. This very well done Flemish bookcase boasts a plethora of storage space. Most of its storage resides behind wood doors making it an ideal place to hide away clutter that is only occasionally used.
Unique Carved Oak
The central glass door catches the eye first and makes a great place for display with its two glass shelves. The other upper cabinets contain two wood shelves each. These all remain fixed and do not adjust. Their depth measures 15.5″. Below, a gorgeous rope twist carved molding separates the top from bottom. Each of the three cabinet spaces along the bottom remain empty (no shelves) and great for storing bulky items.
This antique bookcase rests on ball and claw feet which help add some elegance to the piece. Also, subtle carvings on the rounded corners and carved decorations around the glass door provide the perfect amount of detail. Finally, the top and bottom separate for easier moving.
Antique Bookshelf Condition
Overall this piece is in very good condition. There are a few very minor wear marks here and there. Structurally this antique bookshelf is in great shape and is quite sturdy. All doors lock and a single key that works all locks is included. The front ball and claw feet have had some repairs to them, but remain structurally sound. The back has some significant peeling as you will see in the pictures.
With its unique look and warm color this bookcase will make an excellent addition to your living room or office!
