This beautiful mahogany breakfront bookcase was made in England around 1960 and recently imported to our antique furniture store in Atlanta, GA. The most prominent feature of this beautiful bookcase is the astragal (thirteen pane) fretwork on the glass doors which are highly sought after. Combine that with the brass swan neck pulls and the gorgeous flame mahogany lower cabinet doors and this bookcase is definitely a gem in the rough. All upper and lower doors lock with the one included key.
The left and right upper cabinet section contain three adjustable wooden shelves all with a shelf depth of 10″. Meanwhile, the depth of the center section’s two glass shelves measures 9.5″. The left and middle doors in the lower cabinet open up to one large space with a single fixed wooden shelf. The right cabinet is empty (but appears to have had a shelf at one point). This bookcase comes in two pieces (top and bottom) for easier transporting, so there is no worry about getting it into your home or office.
Some of the aspects of this bookcase that show the high quality of its construction are the dentil moulded cornice and the dovetailed drawers. Decorative moldings on the doors add character to the piece as well.
Triple Door Breakfront Bookcase Condition
We have given this piece a good condition rating. It has cosmetic issues along the bottom of the piece. The bottom molding has sustained a number of marks and dings. There are minor marks and scratches here and there throughout the piece as well, especially on the moldings. A hole exists in the very bottom of the back of the top section where some kind of wire used to run. Despite these cosmetic flaws the bookcase is very sturdy and all moving parts function perfectly. It would make a wonderful addition to any home or office for storage and display!
