Description

A Queen Anne period walnut veneered & feather-banded double dome bookcase or cabinet of good rich colour.
The two door mirrored upper section surmounted by a bold double dome.
The lower section with bank of two short and three long working drawers.
This antique (early 18th century) walnut bookcase is veneered throughout in figured walnut and is feather-banded.
The bold cross grain mouldings are particularly well executed. The cabinet doors with beautifully aged, shallow-bevelled plate glass. Bun feet relocated in their original positions. Finials later. Brassware may well be original. The top has the additional feature of double dome returns, ie to the sides.
Nb. This form of Queen Anne walnut cabinet is much rarer than the conventional, and considerably more costly, walnut double dome bureau bookcases of this period.
It can serve either as a bookcase or cabinet. Over the last 60 years we have only handled three period cabinets of this form.
Lit:
See Ralph Edwards CBE FSA, ‘The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture’, Hamlyn, London (4th Impression 1972) p. 97, ill. 19, for a similarly configured double dome.
Est. 1957
