Victorian Glazed Bookcase Cabinet, c.1840
Our Stock # LFA-1304
This is an antique, Victorian, glazed bookcase cabinet dating to c.1840.
Raised on a plinth base with subtle classical overtones, the mahogany on this tall bookcase has a good, desirable pale colour to the exterior consistent with age. Both upper and lower cabinets with working locks and keys.
The lower cabinet with single fixed shelf within, has a pair of arched, field panel doors displaying excellent grain detail in the flame mahogany bordered with generous mouldings. Flanking the cupboard, a pair of applied scrolled brackets decorate the uprights beneath a pair of oak lined, ogee frieze drawers.
The upper cabinet features a pair of arched doors with original glazing enclosing a series of four, adjustable bookshelves. Above, the cornice caps the piece bringing proportion with a flame cross banded frieze and generous moulding.
A nice example, with solid joints and construction, delivered waxed, polished and ready for the home.
