Product Description

This large yew wood antique style breakfront bookcase is an impressive piece of furniture. Originally made in England around the year 1960, it has recently been imported to our Atlanta antique furniture store.

Bookcase With Cocktail Cabinet

Central to this bookcase’s enjoyment is the cocktail cabinet or fold down bar right in the middle. This section has a mirrored back typical of a liquor cabinet. A great little area for hiding away glasses and bottles until the appropriate occasion. On either side of the liquor cabinet are glass doors with etched fretwork. Each door houses two adjustable glass shelves all with a shelf depth of 9.25″ and which adjust via a brass pin and hole system. Also, the center section above the bar has one shelf as well. All of the doors with the accompanying key. Below are three drawers that were fashioned with dovetailed joints. Antiqued brass swan neck handles adorn the drawers.
Some smaller details really come together with this piece to create an elegant look. The wood itself, yew wood, has a regal look with warm color and small bird’s eyes in the grain. A dentil moulded crown at the top gives the bookcase a very finished look. This bookcase does break down into two pieces (top and bottom) for easier moving.


We have rated this bookcase as good condition. There are some small cosmetic areas to mention. The top right corner of the cornice has a small dent. The left side molding at the bottom of the top section has a small area of damage. Finally, the bottom molding and left front foot have a few minor wear marks. Despite these minor issues, the overall look of the cabinet is stunning!
Overall this is a very sturdy and beautiful breakfront bookcase with cocktail cabinet that will look great in the right setting!
