Product Description

Perfect for use in an office or living room, this antique English bookcase dates to 1960’s England. Designed in a traditional Georgian style, it would make a fantastic addition to any furniture collection.

Versatile design

Like many antique bookcases, this piece has been designed for multiple uses. The drawers provide convenient storage for accessories, paper, and other items common around the home, while the adjustable shelves would be ideal for either books or other display items. As a result this bookcase would be ideal in nearly any home or office setting. The shelf depth of the upper shelves is 9.25″. Each of the glass doors is made up of individual panes of glass and locks. One key is included which operates all of the locks. The lower cabinets each contain one wooden shelf as well.

Classic Georgian style

This antique English bookcase contains a number of elements that are part of traditional English cabinetry. Among them are the yew itself–a popular wood in English furniture for hundreds of years–as well as the brass swan neck pulls, astragal glazed glass, and shaped bracket feet. Together these simple yet elegant details form a striking ensemble that really sets this bookcase apart.

Quality antique English bookcase craftsmanship

As sturdy as it is attractive, this bookcase remains in good overall condition. The dovetailed drawers continue to operate smoothly, while the shelves are straight and firm, which is certainly a sign of quality craftsmanship after so many years. The brass pins also fit very snugly in their holes, making shelf adjustment very easy and simple. There are some very small dings here and there (mostly around the feet), but these are cosmetic only. Also, there are some light scratches to the top of the bottom section that are mostly covered by the bookcase top. With good care, this antique bookcase promises to last for many more decades to come!
This does come in two pieces (top and bottom) for easier moving.
