A stunning Victorian four door breakfront bookcase by Maple & Co in the Aesthetic/Arts & Crafts style. In quarter sawn oak with bevelled glass panes to the astragal glazed doors it features foliate carved emblems and fluting to the cornice, upper section and base as well as wonderful bold carvings of urns of fruit and flowers to the panelled base doors.
With eight original adjustable shelves to the upper section the shelves are nicely finished with a moulded front edge, the stepped out base has two drawers to the sides and four deep cupboards. Fitted with brass twist-open handles and stamped and labelled for Maples & Co of London.
In excellent condition, there is replacement drop to a handle on one base door and another is missing (we will find a replacement), the twist action does not work on all the handles, there are no keys and a shelf is missing from the upper side section and there are no shelves to the base.

Please feel free to contact us for more information or photos, we have many more photos on file for each item but can only upload a limited number.
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.
