Like all of our English reproduction furniture, this pair of burled walnut bookcases was hand made by a third generation furniture maker using Old World methods. Everything about these bookcase speaks of the skill and care that went into making them. The burled walnut is a beautiful honey color and is finished with a seven stage hand rubbed finish process. The four shelves are very thick (about 1″) and adjust with an antique style alligator bracket system. The shelves have a depth of 11.5″. The cabinet doors, each displaying a gorgeous burled walnut grain, lock with an included key. Each cabinet also houses one shelf. At the top a beautiful moulded cornice finishes each bookcase off nicely while the base is a sturdy plinth. Whether in your office, library, or on either side of a fireplace this beautiful pair of burled walnut bookcases will add charm and elegance to any room.
