19th Century French Bibliotheque in Mahogany

About

Superb bookcase from Napoleon III period in Louis XVI style. Gorgeous solid mahogany so called Bird's eye with a French polish finish. Beautiful brass filets moulding on top front and bottom. Each side is adorned by a diamond shaped bronze dore decor representing mascaron and mythological animals. It opens by two front doors, having glass covering 70% of them. The original key is actionning a "cremailliere" lock which will move steel stems top and bottom for easily and safely closing. Resting on 4 feet, the two front ones in "toupie" shape. Inside has five adjustable (original) wooden shelves covered in front by a mahogany veneer. Its relatively small size and its important storage capacity added to its superb appearance, make this bibliotheque a very attractive piece of furniture.
