Antique Georgian Period Mahogany Bookcase
Very smart & practicable antique Georgian mahogany bookcase in good condition & with some unusual features. The top section has vertical panels running up both sides which extend up into the pronounced cornice corners. There are two astral-glazed doors which open up to reveal two bookcase sections both with adjustable shelves on sharks teeth supports. I must apologize, because we forgot to put the shelves in when photographing it as we were probably in a rush at the time. The bottom section gives off the impression that it's two banks of drawers. One side is a bank of four drawers, while on the other side are dummy drawers, which is in fact a cupboard with one shelf in the middle. The handles are original, although there were three missing, so I had them hand made to match, which cost me a fortune. The drawers are finely dovetailed & have the original locks & the locks on the cupboards have been replaced so that they work properly. This bookcase comes apart into two sections, top & bottom. It's a very fine piece of furniture & I would date it to around the 1790-1810 period.
Width - 48", 122 cm
Depth - 19", 48 cm
Height - 84.6", 215
As with all of my items, one might find the odd indentation or marking consistent with the age of the item, so please don't expect new looking antiques. Everything is restored & polished when needed, but I would rather leave as much originality & character as possible.
For those of you wanting delivery, please note the rough guide in costs below, but please note that in order to keep the delivery costs down, very few items can be delivered immediately & sometimes it might take 1-3 weeks, because everything is done by courier.
Please read all the terms and conditions below before bidding.
We have been dealing in antiques for over twenty-five years. Our client base is very loyal, and we have many long-term relationships with both private and trade customers. We have a lot of experience in shipping items of furniture all over the world & will always try to obtain the best possible price, while ensuring safe delivery.
We can accept payment via personal cheque, banker's draft (pounds sterling only), credit and debit cards, or Pay Pal. We also accept cash on collection.
Please note, if you are not happy with any product, we will take it back within 7 days, providing it is in the same condition as when it left our shop. However, you will be responsible for the cost of transport both ways. Obviously, if there is a genuine fault with the product that we haven't mentioned, we will cover the cost of transport, but please be sensible because our products are old so they are bound to have some signs of wear. Should anything be damaged in transport, it will be repaired for you for free. You will need to notify us of any problems straight away. Remember, good communication is important.
Domestic & Overseas Shipping Arranged
Please contact us for a delivery quote before bidding. As a rough guide, most of the furniture items we sell can be sent to the majority of places in England for around £50-£80, but there can be exceptions for more out of the way places, or extremely large pieces, so please always ask. Wales & Scotland may be a bit more. We only ship at cost price, and do our best to get a good deal for our customers.
For overseas shipping most companies charge extra for insurance, between 1.5% & 2.5% of the invoice value. For all deliveries, we will require a full postcode and a telephone number. On most shipments, we ask that you pay the courier or shippers direct - that way you know we only ship at cost. Also, we ask that you communicate directly with each other once the goods have left our premises. Obviously, we will help and advise where we can.
