Large Antique Style Mahogany & Glass Bookcase


This large antique style bookcase is a newly handmade reproduction originating from the shop of a third-generation cabinetmaker in England. From the materials used to the production values themselves, everything about this bookcase is of the utmost quality. The flame mahogany, for instance, displays a remarkably rich complexion and a pronounced grain that are sure to look great in any setting. Complementing the exquisite wood is not only the fine, stained interior, but also the solid brass, winged escutcheons, all of which house functioning locks. The astragal glass itself is quite elegant, providing a classic appearance and a clear, beautifully framed view into the interior of the bookcase. Each section of glass on every door is an individual pane of glass. Shaped bracket feet provide sturdy support, while all shelves are fully adjustable. The bookcase of course disassembles into several pieces: the top moulding, the center upper section, the left and right upper sections, and the base. This is also how the bookcase will ship. Each shelf has a depth of 14.5″ and is adjustable by means of a wooden alligator bracket system. If you are unfamiliar with this system we have included a picture of it. The alligator bracket system was the first commonly used method of making adjustable shelving and remains the most sturdy type today.
