English Short Antique Bookcase

Originally made in England, we date this piece back to around the year 1900. It remains sturdy after all these years proving the skill of the maker. Both shelves adjust via an alligator bracket system. The depth of both shelves measures 9.75″.
Given its narrow depth, sizable width, and good height, the uses for this short antique bookcase seem limitless! Some of our ideas for use include behind a sofa, in a hallway, or as a narrow credenza.


Overall, we have given this bookshelf a very good rating. It is almost perfect for an item of over 100 years in age. The top and shelves exhibit some small stains. These really add some character and depth to the piece, rather than detract from it. Don’t miss your opportunity to bring home this ideally sized short antique bookcase today!
