AAttractive large tall antique Victorian oak bookcase cabinet.
A lovely Victorian oak bookcase cabinet. We date this bookcase cabinet to the second half of the 19th century.
The bookcase cabinet comes in two sections: the bookcase top and the cabinet base.
The bookcase sits on a slightly protruding plain plinth base and the integral cornice is of a stepped design.
The front of the top bookcase is of a two panel design with each panel being a side hinged glazed door. The doors are glazed with single glass panes. The right hand door is fitted with a working lock (key supplied). The left hand door is secured with a side mounted lever bolt.
The interior of the top cabinet is fitted with four height adjustable, full width wooden shelves. The shelves sit on wooden rails housed in a series of notches in the side panels.The underside of the shelves are finished with a decorative leather trim.
The base section comprises of a pair of drawers over a double side hinged door cupboard.
The drawers are fitted with decorative cast copper drop handles mounted on shapely copper backplates.
The cupboard doors feature decoratively carved detail showing acanthus leaves and a foliate design, the carvings suround a large cabochon shaped applied moulding. The right hand door is fitted with a working lock (operated by the supplied key). The left hand door is secured by a rear latch.
The interior of the cupboard is fitted with a single, non-removable wood shelf.
The bookcase cabinet has an overall height of 89.5" (228cm), a base cabinet height of 40" (102cm), a cornice width of 50" (127cm), a base cabinet width of 48" (122cm) and a cabinet depth of 22.5" (57cm). The top bookcase cornice has a depth of 16" (41cm).
The top section of the bookcase has an internal depth of 10" (26cm).
This lovely Victorian oak bookcase cabinet remains in very good solid condition with only minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage, including some minor indentations and wear to the finish. The cornice has a little bit of wear and there is a bit of wear around the base of bookcase. The top surface of the base section has a bit of wear from past use.
This remains a very stylish and elegant large tall Victorian oak bookcase cabinet which will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
