Description

A lovely Victorian mahogany bookcase chest. We date this bookcase to the second half of the 19th century.
The bookcase comes in two sections: the drawer base section and the top bookcase section.
The front of the bookcase is of a two panel design with each panel being a side hinged door. The right hand door is fitted with a lock (key supplied). The top of the bookcase section has a stepped cornice.
The interior of the bookcase section is fitted with four height adjustable full width wooden shelves.
The base cabinet comprises of four graduated drawers, two over two.
The drawers have brass drop handles mounted on oval shaped backplates. The handles have been replaced with period ones at some point in the past.
The bookcase has a height of 81.5" (207cm), a base cabinet height of 34.5" (88cm), a width of 50" (127cm) and a base depth of 19" (48cm). The top bookcase shelf depth is 11" (28cm).
This lovely Victorian mahogany bookcase chest has been constructed to a very high standard and remains in very good solid condition with only very minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage, including some minor indentations, marks and a filled score to the finish on the top exposed surface of the drawer section. The cornice has a few minor indentations from past use.
This remains a very stylish and elegant Victorian bookcase chest which will continue to provide sterling service for many years to come.
