Antique French Bookcase in Solid Walnut

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Unusually narrow for an antique French bookcase, or as they prefer to call it, a bibliotheque. Made from solid walnut around the turn of the century and was very well maintained and was actually so nice, that all we had to do was give it a thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of beeswax.
We located this bookcase in the town of Reims, located in the Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine region of France. Reims was founded back in 80 BC.
