Antique Macey Oak Barrister Bookcase One Drawer Base:
Not a copy, this is an original Macey (Grand Rapids, Michigan) ONE DRAWER Sectional Bookcase Base. The base, whether with or without a drawer, is typically the hardest piece to find because they often ended up on a basement floor where they first swelled up and later rotted over time. This one was never subjected to that abuse. It is 34 inches long, 11 inches deep, and 7 inches tall. The branded label reads #871 Plain Oak Weathered. The base retains its original finish, never stripped or altered, and has never needed repair. The joints of both the carcasse and the drawer are tight; both original pulls remain in place; the glue blocks are still present and still tight; even the floor-saver feet remain beneath. Looking carefully at the pictures you will see three small drips of white paint,but that is the only condition issue not directly related to the simple passage of time. The surface, to be sure, is dry but can be revived if you prefer that to a strip and refinish, and those little paint drips will typically come off with just a light touch of a razor will ship this via USPS Parcel Select, fully insured, to any address in the lower 48 states for $40.
