This attractive mahogany bookcase was crafted in England around the year 1960. It was created in two pieces (top and bottom) to make it easier to move into the home. Boasting a beautiful glass door cabinet top and stunning mahogany wood door bottom, this would make an attractive and useful addition to any office, den, or study.
English Mahogany Bookcase Features
The upper cabinet is made up of two astragal glazed glass doors. Astragal being the term that the English use for a thirteen pane glass with this pattern of wood fretwork on it. Inside are two adjustable shelves with a depth of 10.5″ each. They adjust via a brass pigeon hole system allowing great customization. The bottom section has two drawers for storage. Made with dovetailed joints, they are quite sturdy. Each drawer also sports a lovely brass swan neck handle. The bottom cabinet section has two beautiful mahogany wood doors. The grain pattern on the doors is unique and set off by a satinwood string inlay and mahogany cross band. Inside is a large open section for storage with one adjustable shelf. Dentil moulding at the top and bracket feet at the bottom finish the bookcase off nicely and provide elegant structure to these areas.
Structurally this bookcase is quite sturdy and sound. The doors and drawers work nicely. There is on key which works both locks. The middle molding (just above the drawers) has a few larger dings. The cornice and lower molding/feet have some minor ones. We have included a good sample of these cosmetic marks in our images. Overall this English mahogany bookcase is clean and ready to be used for storage and display immediately!
