Vintage & Antique Bookcases for Sale

Far and away one of the most desirable antique items for any home or business is the bookcase. While sometimes understated in its construction, the bookcase remains the perfect place to stack and display not just your books and files, but also the vast array of ornaments we all somehow accumulate. Although new examples are of course available, antique and vintage bookcases are usually preferred not only because they are made of solid timber which will prove a far better long-term investment, but because of the varieties of style and shape available.


From mighty Breakfront or Library bookcases to smaller waterfall or revolving bookcases or simple open bookcases, we have examples to suit any size of space. If you are looking for something with glazed doors and writing or cabinet storage below then antique Bureau, Secretaire and Library bookcases will add a touch of elegance every time. We even have pairs of matching bookcases for balancing out the look of the room.


At Love Antiques we have an impressive selection of Antique and Vintage bookcases for all your storage needs.

Antique Bookcases FAQs 


What is the difference between a bookshelf and an antique bookcase?

Both bookcase and bookshelves are used in private homes, public libraries, offices, and bookstores. Bookcases have different sizes from small, low models, and high models that can reach up to the ceiling height. Unlike book shelves, a book case may be enclosed with glazed glass doors to protect books from dust or moisture. These are specially used for valuable books. A book shelf is commonly known as an open bookcase. It is an open stand where books are kept. Bookshelves are normally mounted on walls and come in various sizes, styles, and types.  These are versatile pieces of furniture that provide extra storage space for other purposes. Some shelves are placed beneath the stairs to utilize the empty space better. They are commonly used in small apartments.


Where can I find good quality antique bookcases?

At Love Antiques, you can find an extensive selection of the finest quality, vintage bookcases from different periods and craftsmanship.
