Here we have a great antique bookshelf that was crafted in 1989 in England by Bevan Funnell. They are a quality furniture manufacturer that has been around for decades and are known for making quality pieces. We are proud to have one of their pieces in our store! This particular piece retains its original bill of sale taped to the back of it. Such provenance is sure to be valuable in the future!
Unique Glass Doors
The first thing that will most likely catch your eye is the unique curved fretwork on the glass doors. The lovely pattern is reminiscent of Gothic arches, but more subtle. Inside are three adjustable wooden shelves which can change position with a brass pigeon hole system. Their depth is 11.25″. Above, a dental molded cornice and two round carvings provide an elegant top for the entire piece.
There are two drawers both adorned with beautiful swan neck brass handles. Both drawers were constructed with dovetailed joints. Finally the two cabinet doors open to reveal a spacious storage space with one removable but not adjustable wooden shelf inside. Both upper and lower doors on this antique bookshelf lock and a single key is included. The top and bottom separate for easier moving.
Antique Bookshelf Condition
Overall this piece is in excellent condition. There are a few very minor wear marks here and there. Structurally this antique bookshelf is in great shape and is quite sturdy. The drawers open and close easily as do the doors. Finally, the locks work very well.
With its unique look and warm color this bookcase will make an excellent addition to your living room or office!
