The first thing that I notice about this hand crafted antique style elm revolving bookcase is the lovely fan inlay to the top. Combined with the marvelous elm wood and hand finish this revolving bookcase will make an attractive addition to any home or office for many years to come.
Elm revolving bookcase
A fine burled elm is used on the top of this revolving bookcase. The furniture maker has treated the wood to an elaborate hand finishing process leaving a gorgeous finish that looks like it has been around for many, many years. The corners of the top are canted (cut) so there are no sharp edges to catch on when the bookcase is turned or when you pass by it. The canted corners also give the revolving bookcase a more elegant feel than a simple square top would. The fan inlay is a traditional Georgian satinwood fan inlay that gives the bookcase a more traditional and elegant feel. Details like these are what make this piece a high quality, heirloom piece.
This revolving bookcase was recently hand crafted in England by a third generation furniture maker. His care and attention to detail have made this a very sturdy piece of furniture. The plinth base sits firmly on the floor while everything above it rotates easily. A thick center column holds the weight of the shelves and decorative slats run up the left side of each of the four bookcase sides. Each slat is held firmly with three antiqued brass brads. This revolving bookcase is made to hold heavy books and can even support a heavy lamp as well. Each of the shelf areas on the bookcase (eight in total) measure 9.25″ wide x 6.5″ deep. The top shelves are 13.5″ tall and the bottoms are 12.5″ tall.
This particular bookcase has a small indentation to the top that can only be seen in the glare of an overhead light. We have included a picture.
