This glazed English bookcase dates to Circa 1860, and unusually, it is veneered in amboyna; this colour of amboyna is particularly desirable and rarely seen as a decorative veneer on English furniture.
The moldings are made of solid rosewood - another feature that suggests quality and high cost at the time of manufacture.
The bookcase has been professionally and sensitively restored and retains a lovely colour & surface indicative of its age.
The glazing is original, and the quality of construction is excellent.
This cabinet is of small proportions, and as such can be easily placed within the home - but at 9 3/4 inches deep, the adjustable shelf is able to hold most of today's books.
