Item of The Week - Continental Oak Plate Rack / Bookshelves

We just didn’t think it was fair to keep this wonderful Continental Oak Plate Rack / Bookshelf to ourselves so we thought we would share it with you as our ‘Item of The Week’ and we think you will love It just as much as we do. 

What’s not to love about the superb detailing of the Continental style carvings displayed on the front of this unusual piece?  And what’s more, is that it is multi-functional with 2 upper shelves for you to either place your finest display plates on (plate support grooves included) or perhaps your favourite ornaments, whilst at the bottom there is slope fronted trough for you to keep your favourite books.

This solid oak piece of furniture could be suited to a range of decors and rooms and can be wall mounted or could indeed sit on ground level as a display unit or book case. This sort of style would look fantastic in a classic country home but equally, wouldn’t look out of place in a child’s bedroom or playroom.

In its current original condition, it displays age-related marks as to be expected for a piece dating from the 19th Century.  Whether you decide to keep it as it is, is of course up to you, however, you may wish to wax, stain or even paint it; nothing will take away its charm and the spectacular intricacy of its design. 

This Plate Rack/ Bookshelf is being sold by Furniture Chapter for £395
