Here we have a beautiful 19th century (late Victorian) glass front bookcase with 2 opening doors.
Wood is probably mahogany
This was possibly the top half of a 2 tier bookcase - but the lower part has long since gone. However, this stands as a lovely piece of furniture in its own right.
Height = 920mm (36")
Width = 790mm (31")
Depth = 260mm (10")
Base to lowest = 290mm (11.5 inches)
Lowest to next up = 260mm (10 inches)
Top to upper shelf = 210mm (8.25 inches)
Has a great patina of use (see the pictures). The cabinet making is good - the wood lustre is very nice.
Still has the original glass panels - the ripples in the glass reveal its age.
There is also a key for locking the doors
Doors stay closed without a key. There is no warping or other distortion.
The shelves are fitted not loose or adjustable.
Absolutely sound in all the joints
2 shelves (not including the base)
Usable depth of shelves is 8.25 inches.
Floor standing - or could be wall mounted with correct fixings (not supplied).
A lovely piece indeed. Would grace any home, or office.
