This is a good quality English Georgian style antique oak bookcase, constructed during the George V period, circa 1920, with good colour and in excellent original condition, measuring 3ft wide. Incorporating single plank moulded top, with lovely grain configuration, the bookcase is decorated with flat fluted columns. The bookcase consists of three adjustable shelves. The original wooden bars can be moved up or down to adjust the height of each shelf; although they are currently fixed in place at common positions (but these can be adjusted if required). The bookcase stands on a moulded plinth and retains its original backboards.
This antique oak bookcase features a dark rich oak colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This antique oak bookcase would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the office or living room. It would certainly grace any home and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional.
This antique oak bookcase is in excellent original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, but nothing significant, considering the age of the item. The bookcase stands on its original plinth and retains its original bracket feet and backboards. The shelves and adjustable wooden bars are all intact (none are missing). The bookcase has been wax polished by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop, therefore the colour and patination are of an excellent standard. The item is solid in joint and ready to use.
