Tall 1890s Antique Solid & Burled Walnut Bookcase Cabinet Carved Glass Doors For Sale
Here is a fine very late 19th century mostly solid walnut and very tall at7 and 1/2 feet bookcase. I love the simple architectural features of the carved arches over each glass door which combines the look of solid walnut and it would be fantastic in a library setting or even as a display cabinet as working locksets have now been replaced so both doors will easily lock. It is perfect for the room a the top of a narrow stairwell as it dismantles and sets up very easily.
The base with the two drawers is the first level to set up. This base section retains the original porcelain castors. Each of the side panels is screwed to a rear panel. It is easiest to handle these steps like this. Add one side and then the other. Then the center piece for the shelves slips in, add the shelves and the front center piece to Which each of the doors will lock. Add the crown and then it is time to hang the doors. **The left door top hinge has been moved to a lower point on the door at some point. This is shown close up in the photos. **
The "silver" pieces which show up on the doors and on the center section have been removed and the appropriate lock sets have been installed with working keys. The top of the cabinet with the glass doors is fully lockable.
The rear boards are solid pine and many are straight sawn...all of the secondary is pine.
Width at widest (at crown) = 60"
Depth at deepest (at crown) = 24"
