Description

This Georgian mahogany breakfront bookcase was made in the late Georgian period. These bookcases are superb items as they store so many books from your library.

Imagine how impressive this will look in your home as it is such a wonderful item on the eye. It was made for an important home of the period where the cost was secondary to the quality and workmanship.

The glazed top section consists of 4 doors, a pair in the middle breakfront section and a single door to each end all with adjustable shelves in the interior. The base conforms in the same manner but with blind panels.

The history of this bookcase is interesting as it was purchased by an American collector from the auction of an important house just after the Second World War and shipped to Philadelphia USA.( After the war many of Britain’s fine large homes were sold and the contents were sold to buyers all around the world, mostly the USA as the owners had emigrated or been killed in the conflict.) In recent years it was returned to the UK, where we were invited to purchase it, we were of course delighted to do so and now are pleased to offer it for sale.

This Georgian mahogany breakfront bookcase is a finite item that is a very green product which has not affected the environment we live in.
