Description

A pair of handsome bookcases in quarter sawn oak and dating to the second half of the 19th century. Each with open shelves above an inverted breakfront base with cupboards to each side. These were reputedly from an Oxford college and one still has the name plate for ‘Elliston & Cavell Ltd, House Furnishers, Oxford’.
In good original condition and with desirable golden colour. On the upper section the lower shelf is fixed with the upper being adjustable. One bookcase has two shelves to each cupboard whilst the other has one but they could be swapped around to suit, both shelves to the centre section are adjustable (one shelf not original). A brass curtain rail has been added to the centre section on one but could be easily removed. There are some marks to the tops and drying lines to the sides, as well as an old repair to a hinge but all solid.
For delivery and moving each bookcase splits into top and bottom section and the shelves can be removed.

When buying it is important appreciate antiques have long histories of daily use and as such, over time they gain minor scratches, marks, knocks, shrinkage splits, signs of old woodworm, lifts and losses to veneer, which combine with care and years of polishing to create an individual character and patina. We describe the main flaws and those that fall outside of this bracket but cannot describe each marks separately and therefore suggest you do take the time to request extra photos. We do offer a 14 day money back guarantee if you are unhappy with your purchase but cannot refund the return shipping cost. If you are not sure please do not buy without clarifying or take the view that the only way to have it as near to new as possible is to have it fully and comprehensively restored.
For delivery we use a small carrier experience in carrying antique furniture. Delivery is usually within 31 days and the carrier will make arrangements with you directly. We can provide contact details of other carriers if required.
