Product Description

This stunning flame mahogany bookcase was crafted in England around the year 1960 as a Georgian period reproduction. Fitted with a convenient secretaire in the center and a variety of shelves, it would make a fine addition to any home or office furniture collection.

A beautiful antique mahogany bookcase

Every aspect of this bookcase speaks to the finest quality craftsmanship and materials. The wood is a rich selection of flame mahogany, which has developed a lovely patina over the years. This, combined with an expert finishing process, has resulted in a remarkably rich complexion and a highly pronounced grain. In contrast with the flame mahogany, the upper set of doors are made with elegantly fret-worked glass (each section is an individual pane of glass). Dentil molding adorns the very top, while brass pulls adorn the secretaire and smaller drawers. This impressive array of details makes this antique mahogany bookcase quite a wonderful piece!

Convenient office furniture functionality

As useful as it is beautiful, this bookcase contains a total of six adjustable shelves in the top and three removable shelves in the bottom. The shelves are all very sturdy, making them suitable for storing even the heaviest of books. The top middle shelves measure 11″ deep and the side shelves measure 10″ deep each. The central drawer contains a fine secretaire with green leather inlay bordered by gold tooling. A number of small, divided compartments and drawers also provide convenient storage. Finally, this bookcase disassembles into the top and bottom sections, making it easy to move for two people.

Good condition

Like any quality English piece, this bookcase is incredibly sturdy. In fact it remains as sturdy today as ever, with a strong wood frame that hasn’t budged or warped even one bit since its construction over five decades ago. General wear in the form of small marks can be found throughout and there are minor scratches on the counter where the top sits on the bottom section. Also, the front has experienced some fading over the years. Finally, a small chip exists to the back left corner of the cornice molding. Still, for a mahogany bookcase of this age, this is quite minor and certainly contributes to its genuine antique character. So overall, this piece remains in good condition: a true heirloom quality bookcase, it will last for many more decades to come!
