Early 19th Century Rustic Two-Tiered Bookcase ~ Display Case

About the Item

Early 19th century rustic two-tiered bookcase ~ display case was crafted by talented rural artisans who followed the lead of the court's style dictates of the era. This piece falls during the transition from the Directoire style to the Louis Philippe style, and presents a stately simplicity that can only be admired. Using what we would consider primitive hand tools, they carefully joined the wood using pegged mortise & tenon joints that remain tight even today. Glazing on the upper doors allows one to show off one's library or collection, or even fine china if used in the dining room. The lower cabinet consist of an organizational dream with two spacious drawers and two cabinet doors that open up to reveal unencumbered access to the surprisingly spacious interior. Finely cast brass key guards add a nice touch, with keys used as pulls, which we will of course supply. Hand-crafted from solid indigenous oak to last for centuries, its tailored lines and utter utility will make it an instant family heirloom for all to enjoy for generations to come! Circa 1830s Measures 87H x 46W x 19D.
