Description

A stunning William IV burr walnut breakfront bookcase. Dating to circa 1830 it features a moulded square cornered cornice above three glazed doors with acanthus carved and fluted columns flanking the central door, the base section with a thumb moulded top and plain frieze above three panelled cupboard doors separated by similarly panelled wide breakfront pilasters between the doors. The centre door is also crossbanded within the panel to give the appearance of a raised shape.
With eleven original adjustable shelves to the upper section the shelves are nicely finished with a chanelled front whilst the stepped out base has a shelf to each section (one being a replacement). The upper doors are fitted with locks and come with working keys whilst the base section does not have keys but the doors are held closed by a roller ball catch.
In very good condition and recently repolished using a traditional wax polish, knob handles which were not original have been removed in the past  ...show more description
