Impressive Victorian carved mahogany bookcase imported from England and dating
back to the late 1800's.
The top hutch has double glass doors which open to reveal 3 thick rustic
wooden adjustable shelves. On top you will find an elegantly shaped cornice
with turned wooden button detail and hand carved rosettes to the front.
All of this is mounted on top of a cupboard with carved flower detail on the
double doors which open to reveal a spacious storage area with one shelf. This
is topped by a single drawer and flanked by 2 beautifully shaped and scrolled
columns with more hand carved rosettes.
This is a grand, tall piece of antique furniture which would also make a great
china cabinet or display case. The old wavy glass is in great shape for it's
age and over all it is in solid sturdy condition. The hutch does come off
making it easier to move and ship.
As you will see in the pictures this piece is not perfect. There is a wooden
button missing from one side of the cornice and there has been some movement in
the wood causing some splitting on one side of the cupboard and other areas.
There is wear and imperfections throughout adding to old world charm which I
have tried to show as much as possible in the pictures and as you can see this
is still a fabulous piece of Victorian furniture.
I encourage you to please study the pictures carefully and there are more
pictures available upon request.
Dimensions: width at cornice 50", depth 20", height 89 1/2".
