Product Description

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 unique glass doors, each fitted with brass hardware and functioning locks, and behind them the wooden shelves with a shelf depth of 9″ while the sides taper from 9″ to 12″. Below these are a complement of three doors fashioned all alike with stunning flame mahogany grain that really catches your eye. Finally, a sturdy plinth base on the bottom elevates this wonderful Georgian style bookcase so that it imparts a sense of openness.
Two features make this piece unique and outstanding. First, the overall shape of the front is concave (bows inward). This unique shape to such a long piece really helps it stand apart. Second, the arched fretwork on the glass doors provides elegance and beauty. Each section of glass is an individual pane.

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. 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 chip to the top left corner of the cornice. Finally, there is a repair to the bottom molding of the top section on the left side. The bottom of the top half has some tiny chips on both sides. 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 three keys are included.
