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
