A lovely large antique mahogany bookcase cabinet. We date this bookcase cabinet to the late 19th century. The bookcase cabinet comes in various sections, please be aware that the plinth base and top panel of the base section comes as one long piece each. The bookcase sits on a plain plinth base. The front of the top bookcase is of a six panel design with each panel being a hinged glazed door.The doors are fitted with catches that are operated by turning the handles. 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. Its 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.
