Bookcases & Display Cabinets

Antique Edwardian Inlaid Mahogany Bow Fronted Display Cabinet

Very impressive antique Edwardian bow fronted mahogany display cabinet with some fine inlays all over. This cabinet is in good condition throughout & it has just been relined with a kind of velvet. There are two doors with bowed glass & it sits on tapered legs with spade end feet. I have been assured that we do have two keys, which are taped to the back of this piece. Take an enlarged look at all the images, particularly the fine inlays.

Antique Queen Anne Style Burr Walnut Bureau Bookcase

Slim antique Queen Anne style walnut bureau bookcase in good condition dating from around the 1930-50's period. It has a dome top & a shaped arch glazed single top door, with fabric inside & two shelves. The bureau opens up to reveal a lovely interior with arched pigeon holes, two drawers & a writing surface. There are three drawers on the base section which sits on bracket feet. The wood is composed of burr walnut & figured walnut with some other inlay. The sides & drawers are have beautiful panels. The figuring of the wood is stunning throughout this piece. This bureau bookcase comes apart in two sections for easy transportation.

Pair of Re-Constructed Antique Oak Open Bookcases or CD Storage Units

This pair are very unusual & could be quite useful. I don't know whether to call them bookcases or something else. They are tall, very slim & solid oak. They look to me as if they have been made out of antique oak, which was fairly distressed, so they do have a lot of character. The shelves are fixed & these items are very heavy for their size. They sit on bold bracket feet & front of the tops are also nicely shaped. They look like they were hand made. I don't know when they were constructed, because this is how I obtained them. The previous owner said he bought them at an antiques fair many years ago.

Small Slim Antique Walnut Bureau Bookcase

This antique walnut bureau bookcase has wonderfully small proportions & many lovely features. I would say it has a kind of Dutch or Queen Anne style & dates from around the 1930-50's period. This piece looks a lot older because of the extremely distressed mirror on the top door. It has an arched top & behind the mirrored door it's lined with fabric, which looks like it may have been redone at some point (not sure). The bureau opens up to reveal a couple of drawers & a writing surface. The bottom section has a kind of inverted serpentine shape, with three drawers & brass drop handles. This all sits on bracket feet. The nicest thing about this piece besides the proportions, are the magnificent veneers of burr & figured walnut. They have used the patterns & cross banding very well. This has been all French polished & you may notice a couple of fresh scratches on the writing surface in the images, which will of course be taken care of before this piece goes out.
