Item Details


  • Product Type: Bookcases
  • Original/Reproduction: Original
  • Style: William IV
  • Age: 1800-1899
  • Material: Mahogany

Believed to date from circa 1835-1840, the open bookcase is of good quality with 3 adjustable shelves, reeded front and scrolls and has a double shelf above.  Adjustment for the shelves is continuous for the full height of the bookcase in 1.5cm increments.  The double shelf over the bookcase is supported on a pair of elegant turned spindle supports. 

The bookcase is well proportioned with maximum dimensions of 148.5cm (58.5”) high, 117.5cm (46”) wide and 36cm (14”) deep.  Note there is a small piece of veneer missing from the side of the bookcase (see photo) and there is a ring mark to the French polish (from a wet glass) on the lower shelf over the book case (see photo).

·         Shelves over bookcase: Front to back internal depth of top shelf is 17cm (6.5”) and lower shelf is 15.5cm (6”).

·         Open bookcase: total internal height 85cm (33.5”). Front to back internal depth of shelves is 27cm (10.5”).

 We have owned this piece for nearly 20 years.  It was valued in 1999 at £4,500 (see photo of valuation).  However, we are now downsizing from our Victorian home to a modern house and so it’s time for it to have a new owner.  

Collection only.  Note that the shelves lift off the main bookcase (see photo) and the maximum dimensions of the open bookcase is 102.5cm (40.5”) high, 117.5cm (46”) wide and 36cm (14”) deep for transporting.  You may be interested in my other antique items.
