Attractive large tall antique Victorian oak bookcase cabinet.
A lovely Victorian oak bookcase cabinet. We date this bookcase cabinet to the second half of the 19th century.
The bookcase cabinet comes in three sections: the bookcase top, the cabinet base and a separate cornice.
The bookcase sits on a slightly protruding plain plinth base and the cornice is of stepped design.
The front of the top bookcase is of two panel design with each panel being a side hinged glazed door. The doors are glazed with single glass panes. The right hand door is fitted with a working lock (key supplied). The left hand door is secured with side mounted lever bolts.
The interior of the cabinet is fitted with three height adjustable, full width wooden shelves. The shelves sit on wooden rails housed in a series of notches in the side panels.
The base section comprises of a pair of carved drawers over a double side hinged door cupboard.
The drawer has a very decorative relief carved foliate panel and is fitted with decorative coppered drop handles mounted on shapely backplates.
The cupboard doors have embossed central panels which feature decoratively carved detail, depicting a foliate design within a vase. The doors are fitted with working locks (operated by the supplied key).
The interior of the cupboard is fitted with a single removable wood shelf.
The bookcase cabinet has an overall height of 94" (239cm), a base cabinet height of 40" (102cm), a cornice width of 57" (145cm), a base cabinet width of 55" (140cm) and a cornice depth of 14.5" (37cm). The bottom bookcase has a depth of 20.5" (52cm).
This lovely Victorian oak bookcase cabinet remains in a solid condition with only minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage, including some minor indentations and wear to the finish. The cornice has a little bit of wear to the front corners and there is some wear to the top surface of the bottom section, primarily to the top left hand side. There is a bit of wear to the wood on the top front surface of the base section and on the base plinth of the top section.
This remains a very stylish and elegant large tall Victorian oak bookcase cabinet which will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
