Inspired by 19th-century antique furniture, this Georgian style bookcase was crafted in England around the year 1960. Today it remains as beautiful as ever, ideal for a formal dining or office setting.
Classic Georgian style
The top of this elegant bookcase is adorned with dentil molding, a perfect crown for any antique style piece. Below that are three astragal glass doors, each fitted with brass hardware and functioning locks, and behind them the center adjustable wooden shelves with a shelf depth of 11.5″ while the sides have a 10″ depth. The three drawers each feature brass swan neck pulls on mahogany drawer fronts. Below these are a complement of three doors fashioned all alike with stunning flame mahogany grain that really catches your eye. Finally, the shaped bracket feet on the bottom elevate this wonderful Georgian style bookcase so that it imparts a sense of openness.
Also, there is a wooden adjustable shelf in each of the bottom cabinets.
Functionality as a bookcase and cabinet
Because the upper wood shelves are housed behind glass doors, the top of this bookcase is ideal for showcasing beautiful items like antique books or formal dinnerware. As a result this bookcase would make a fine display cabinet in addition to performing its intended function. The lower doors can house either more books or various accessories for the kitchen and dining room, while the drawers offer convenient storage for smaller items. Clearly this charming English antique is every bit as functional as it is lovely to behold!
Very good condition
This vintage mahogany bookcase has weathered the years quite beautifully. A gentle patina has begun to settle into the wood, enriching the mahogany’s complexion and distinctive grain. All of the mechanical and moving parts–the doors, the locks, and the drawers–operate flawlessly. The wood, however, has sustained a number of light, cosmetic scuffs mostly on the middle and lower moldings. Such a light level of distressing and wear is normal for Georgian style bookcases of this age, so overall condition remains good. Also, there is a small raised area on the front right top corner. This English bookcase would make a fine addition to any antique furniture collection!
This does come apart into two pieces (top and bottom) for easier moving and two keys are included.
