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.
