A super Victorian four door breakfront bookcase attributed to Maple & Co of London and previously owned by Mario Conti (Bishop of Aberdeen 1977-2002 and Archbishop of Glasgow 2002-2012). Dating to c.1880 and designed in the Aesthetic taste in quarter sawn oak it features a stylised egg & dart cornice and foliate carved emblems and fluting to the uprights along with typically Arts & Crafts brass handles. With twelve original adjustable shelves to the upper section, the shelves are nicely finished with burgundy and gilt embossed leather skirts and a red baize top, the stepped out base has a fixed baize lined shelf to each section. Overall this bookcase will store just over 53ft (16.2m) of books.
In very good condition overall, some marks as should be expected for age and use and some small bits of moulding missing from front uprights, one handle drop is missing (we will find a replacement), comes with two keys which open all doors except the base left and base centre doors, baize more description
