antique pine glazed bookcase in original paint




Item Ref


A wonderful example of an early Victorian classic double door bookcase vitrine.
Rarely found in original untouched condition, still in the paint finish it was first made in, a lovely elaborate rosewood in this case.
It also has very fine architectural features:
* crisply turned full Ionic pillars either side,
* intricate mouldings around the original glass windows ,
* chunky hand turned feet (one of the blocks on the back has been replaced),
*breakfront base
*original escutcheons,catches and lock ( there is no key at the moment, but it will receive a period reproduction)
*original adjustable ladder shelf system and 4 original shelves.
The dark buttermilk coloured interior paint is clean bar the very base, which shows old ring marks. ( see photo 2).
The bookcase is in excellent condition, a small damage on the cornice, (see photo3) is all one could report.
This piece can be left as is for the purist, stripped and wax polished or painted to suit a colour scheme. Please ask for a quote.
Dimensions: 45" 1150mm wide
24" 610mm deep
72" 1830mm high
152 380mm shelf depth
