Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rare piece originating from a considered Family in Fontainebleau city (France).It was built at the beginning of "Belle Époque" and is both extremely attractive esthetically with its superb acanthus frieze at top surmounted by a dental molding and functionally with three doors at bottom (having shelves inside), two pull-out flaps and four levels for books, three being adjustable shelves.
The "rounded "corner at its center provides an additional esthetic advantage, giving the all library an incredible lightness despite the important volume of documents and books it can hold.
