Product Description

A stunning yew wood antique breakfront bookcase that was made in England around 1960 by a company called Harding Reproduction Furniture.  It features three locking astragal glazed glass doors, three drawers, and three locking cabinet doors below.

Antique Breakfront Bookcase

The back of the middle lower door of this antique breakfront bookcase is tagged with a label from Harding Reproduction Furniture in England. There is not much information on this company, however, their work is well done. Over the years this antique breakfront bookcase has been kept in excellent condition. There are very few wear marks here and there as you would expect from a piece of this age. The very top is adorned with a dentil moulded cornice. All of the shelves in the top section have a depth of 9.25″ and are adjustable with a brass pigeon hole system into three different positions. Below the top is a row of three drawers. Each drawer slides in and out effortlessly. Harding has shown their attention to detail in this antique breakfront bookcase in the dovetailed drawer joints. The drawers also each feature a swan neck brass pull. Below the drawers are three cabinet doors decorated with ebony line inlay. Each door reveals its own storage section with one adjustable wooden shelf. Finally this antique breakfront bookcase sits on a set of sturdy bracket feet.

Yew Wood

The wood used is a beautiful selection of yew wood containing plenty of flare in the grain. Yew wood furniture like this is hard to find and extremely beautiful. All of the doors lock with two included keys and the entire antique breakfront bookcase comes apart in two sections (top and bottom) for easier transporting. You won’t find a lovelier cabinet out there so don’t miss this one!
