Exceptionally Large Set Of Bespoke Made Antique ...

Item Ref

Exceptionally large set of antique pine library bookcase cabinets.

An extremely large set of antique pine bookcase cabinets. They have the provenance of coming from a local Sheriff Court, and we date them to the 1900's.

The bookcases come in five main large sections with their skirting boards, mouldings and cornices. Due to it's bespoke design, this bookcase would need to be installed by a suitable carpenter. We have additional panels of antique pine which could be supplied at no extra cost, with which to tailor the bookcase ends to your exact requirements.

The bookcases are lettered A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, J & K. They have three differing depths and three sections create an attractive break front design.

The bookcase doors have brass lattice work with linen fold green curtains to the rear. They would have likely been glazed originally, and have had this lattice work to replace the glass in order to protect the books from sunlight.

The doors are fitted with working locks (keys supplied). Doors A - D are of a standard side hinged design and doors E - H are of a double-hinged design, whereby the two inner doors are hinged to the two outer doors.

The interiors are fitted with height adjustable shelves which sit on small metal pegs housed in a series of holes in the sides of the cabinet.

Each bookcase has an overall height of 102" (259cm).

Bookcase A - B has a width of 107.5" (273cm) and a depth of 14.5" (37cm). The shelves are 53" (135cm) wide by 12" (31cm) deep.

Bookcase C - D has a width of 103.5" (263cm) and a depth of 14.5" (37cm). The shelves are 49" (125cm) wide by 12" (31cm) deep.

Bookcase E - F has a width of 100" (254cm) and a depth of 17" (cm). The shelves are 48" (122cm) wide by 13.5" (35cm) deep.

Bookcase G - H has a width of 100" (254cm) and a depth of 21" (cm). The shelves are 48" (122cm) wide by 17.5" (45cm) deep.

Bookcase J - K has a width of 100" (254cm) and a depth of 17" (cm). The shelves are 48" (122cm) wide by 13.5" (35cm) deep.

The cornice adds an additional 4" (10cm) of depth to each section.

This lovely antique pine court/library bookcase has been constructed to a very high standard and it remains in very good solid condition. There are some minor spots of wear and usage marks, and some marks where they were taken out of the court house.

This set of library bookcases remains as impressive and majestic as when it was originally built. It will surely prove to be an exceptional talking point and provide an excellent amount of storage space for years to come.

The interior of the top cabinet is fitted with adjustable position full width wooden shelves.

The base section consists of large cupboard sections, each fitted with a full width shelf.

Although a very substantial size as is, the bookcase has been longer in a past life. It would appear that the left hand side has had another four sections originally, these have been removed at some point in the distant past and brought back to make a more usable sized six door bookcase. It’s possible to tell when looking at the finish on the outer left hand side. The far left doors would have been hinged from the left side, although the top door is original, someone has changed the bottom right hand door hinges to the right.

The bookcase cabinet has an overall height of 103" (262cm), a base cabinet height of 38.5" (98cm), a cornice width of 154" (391cm), a base cabinet width of 146" (371cm) and the base section has a depth of 20.5" (52cm). The top shelves have a depth of 11” (28cm).

This lovely bookcase cabinet remains in a good solid condition with surface markings commensurate with age and usage, including some minor indentations and wear to the finish. The finish has mellowed very slightly over time, primarily to the right hand side. There is a bit of wear to some of the edge mouldings.

This remains a very stylish and elegant large bookcase cabinet which will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
