English 19th Century Pair of Burr Walnut Open Bookcases



A fine quality pair of mid-19th century English burr walnut dwarf open bookcases of good proportions having superbly figured rectangular tops over adjustable shelves and extremely well figured ends raised on original plinth bases (These bookcases are a good bold size in terms of height  and width whilst managing to remain relatively shallow which of course significantly broadens the appeal in terms of spaces they could be used. They offer an enormous amount of storage and the adjustable shelves allow for books, dvd's etc of a variety of different sizes to be stored in them. The construction is of excellent quality and this is evidenced by the panelled backs and  choice of exceptionally well figured walnut veneers not just for the tops but for the ends as well. They also have a solid and sturdy feel to them which is important to somebody who may be planning to  fill them to the brim with heavy books etc. It is pretty rare to find a  pair of this quality and style still together after all these years and  that combined with the functionality will no doubt combine to  create a very happy and satisfied end purchaser).
