This is a wonderful small free-standing farmhouse shelf unit - probably dating from the 1900s - art nouveau/arts and crafts period.
See the pretty and intricate carvings through the wood.
Wood is well-aged oak (good quality).
At some time in its life it has been stripped and bleached, and now has a great 'well lived-in' finish.
This could also be mounted on the wall, there are holes already in place which have been used to do this (see the pictures)
Dimensions are approx:
Width = 860mm (26 inches)
Height = 840mm (33 inches)
Shelf depth = 165mm (6.5 inches)
Shelf spacings are as follows (bottom to top):
Bottom = 210mm (8.25 inches), next up = 150mm (6 inches), next up = 150mm (6 inches).
The piece really has a great look, and just has the usual wear and blemishes of an item of this age and condition - which we have tried to show in the pictures.
One back panel was warped - but this has now been properly repaired for sale.
This shelf unit could easily be upcycled to the 'shabby chic' style with a coat of F&B paint - but its really nice just as it is.
Perfect for a kitchen spice rack, living room paperback or CD storage, or anywhere for a small space.
