Bookcase, French Ebonized Walnut with Original Finish

About

One of our most highly sought after items here at Old Plank right now seems to be large cabinets and this one is exceptional. Built with old world craftsmanship and know how, this Fine bibliotheque or cabinet has so many amenities, I don't know where to start. Constructed using French solid white oak with a walnut front, it is fully apparent this incredible example has been ebonized since it was very first made. Extensive carved details including a magnificent carved herringbone lip overlapping the tiny void between the centre doors, Louis XVI style flutings and rosettes, intricate Napoleon III roundels and finials that mimic the feet decorate this bookcase to the nth degree. Hand beveled glass doors (the two centre ones are arched), smooth functioning locks and fully adjustable shelves add to this out of this world antique masterpiece. One other special design benefit is that this tremendous cabinet is engineered to break down into several smaller pieces to facilitate easier moving.
