About

We are excited to present this stunning, very well-made flamed mahogany large Astral Glazed library breakfront bookcase. You can see by how it is all put together that its first owner gave a significant budget to the cabinetmaker that made this stunning piece. First, the size is substantial, the back panels are solid, no chipboard is used, and the piece is hefty. When you remove drawers, you can see it's all done following the traditional way of joined dovetails, dating back hundreds of years. All drawers and doors have locks with the original keys, and the shelves have been upholstered in a lovely, very soft-to-touch blue fabric. The piece comes with two slip serving trays which can be used to put the cups and plates on while you are putting them away. Throughout its life, the wood has acquired a patina that is simply stunning and gives it this undeniable antique quality. As you can see, the astral glass is made to repeat the same pattern all over the front doors. This bookcase was done with skilled and traditional craftsmanship, and this bookcase will be an excellent acquisition for all conventional interiors. We have lightly restored this by giving it a hand clean, waxed and polishing from top to bottom. Please carefully look at the pictures to see the condition before purchasing, as they form part of the description. Measurements Height - 213 cm Width - 273 cm Depth - 45 cm Please note all measurements are taken to the widest point of the item.
