Antique Mahogany Breakfront Bookcase with Stunning Satinwood Inlays

This large antique Edwardian mahogany breakfront bookcase is wonderful quality & has fine satinwood inlays all over. Please enlarge all the images to appreciate all the fine details. The top pediment can be taken off if it makes the bookcase too high for your purposes & obviously it will give the bookcase a different look, which is good, because it gives you two options. Having said all that, this bookcase isn't really that high. The top glazed doors are astral-glazed & the shelves inside can all be adjusted by sliding them into any of the grooves. The bottom cupboards all have beautiful satinwood floral inlays on raised fielded panels & there are single shelves in each cupboard. It also sits on bracket feet. There are many other satinwood inlays on the top, around the doors & even on the sides. I would date this bookcase to around the 1890-1910 period & it's not a made up piece, just totally original. I don't think it will hang around for long either. This piece is in good original condition & structurally sound, with locks & keys. We have just given it a revive & polish, so there will be a bit of old wear to the polish here & there, but nothing untoward. I think it all looks great & I wouldn't want to spoil the character by stripping & re-polishing.

Bespoke Antique Burr Walnut Open Bookcase

This magnificent large open bookcase has just been constructed by a master craftsman. He has used top quality European burr walnut veneers on the front & figured walnut on the sides & insides. As you probably know, we have made many of these in the past, normally made to order in any wood, size or configuration. I need to have a few examples on the site & in the shop, so people can see the quality. I did have one or two different bookcase left in the shop, but I thought I would have something different made. This bookcase has two compartments with adjustable shelves on shark teeth supports. The main difference between this one & the others, is that the inside back & sides are polished walnut veneers, which give it a smarter look. We normally have the inside ochred like they were in the original Victorian ones, which is fine if you are only going to use it for books. Having a polished veneered interior means you don't have to put just book in it. This way, does cost quite a bit more to produce, because there is a lot more polishing involved. Anyway, take a good enlarged look at all the images to appreciate the quality.

Antique Mahogany Display Cabinet on Stand

Impressive antique mahogany display cabinet in good original condition, with original colour & patina. The top cornice has a dental frieze with tear drop mouldings below. The astral glazing is of Gothic design & the shelves inside the cabinet are shaped. There is a working key & the glazed section sits on the original stand with chamfered legs. This cabinet is a very well constructed piece & you can see how well the back is panelled with solid timbers. I would date this cabinet to around the 1890's period.

Antique Georgian Style Mahogany Breakfront Bookcase

Very impressive, mahogany breakfront bookcase, with four astral glazed doors above & four flame mahogany panelled doors below. The top of this bookcase has a dental cornice, with tear drop mouldings. Inside the top cupboards are fully adjustable shelves & the bottom cupboards have single shelves inside. This bookcase is excellent quality & has a nice original colour, with plenty of character. I believe it might have been made by a firm called 'Bevan Funnel' in the 1950's. It's in very good condition & it is structurally sound. Because of it's size it will separate into two sections for easier transportation.
