Product Description

Simple but elegant, this short antique bookcase exhibits a stylish and charming way to display books. Yew wood provides an elegant appeal while sturdy shelves provide lots of room. Whether in the office or the living room, this bookcase blends well with all styles and colors.

English Short Antique Bookcase

Originally made in England, we date this piece back to around the year 1960. It remains sturdy after all these years proving the skill of the maker. Both shelves adjust via a brass pin and hole system. The depth of both shelves measures 10.75″.
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 50 years in age. The feet and apron exhibit some small wear marks. These really add some character and depth to the piece, rather than detract from it. Finally, the back right corner of the top has a small light area that are not sure if it is a touch up or flaw in the wood. Don’t miss your opportunity to bring home this ideally sized short antique bookcase today!
