Huge Tall Solid English Oak Victorian Library Sliding Glass Door Bookcase

$7,016.8120% Off


We are delighted to offer for sale this huge solid English oak handmade Library bookcase with base drawers. This is a rare and substantial piece of furniture, it is massive, just under 8 feet tall, its as solid as you could possibly hope to find, luckily it can be dismantled into three pieces for ease of transport. Each side has 5 shelves so 10 in total, they are all removable or height adjustable which is a must for any library. The base drawers are wide and tall so again offer oodles of storage. All the doors slide nicely, they have the original glass which is hand pegged in place, the top of each door has been arched and has some lovely floral carvings, the shelves have the original Victorian leather fringe on the end which is dry and perished in places however it still exists which is rare hence why I have left it in place. We have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, there will be normal age-related patina marks all over. There are locks on the side of two of the sliding doors, I don’t have keys but may be able to have keys made should the new owner wish, there is of course a cost involved. Dimension: Height 240cm Width 163cm Depth 39cm. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point. This item is available for collection from our Wimbledon warehouses. Condition: Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition. Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade.
