A lovely Victorian oak bookcase chest. We date this bookcase to the second half of the 19th century. The bookcase comes in two sections: the drawer base section and the glazed bookcase section. The front of the bookcase is of two panel design with each panel being a side hinged glazed door. Each door is glazed with single glass panes. The right hand door is fitted with a lock (key supplied). The top of the glazed section has a stepped cornice. The interior of the bookcase section is fitted with three height adjustable full width wooden shelves. The base cabinet comprises of five graduated drawers, two over three. The drawers have brass swan neck drop handles mounted on backplates. The bookcase has a height of 83″ (201cm), a base cabinet height of 40″ (102cm), a cornice width of 50.5″ (128cm) and a cornice depth of 11.5″ (29cm) and a base depth of 20 (51cm). The top bookcase shelf depth is 8 (20cm). This lovely Victorian mahogany bookcase chest has been constructed to a very high standard and remains in very good solid condition with only very minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage, including some minor indentations and marks to the finish on the top exposed surface of the drawer section. This remains a very stylish and elegant Victorian glazed bookcase cabinet which will continue to provide sterling service for many years to come.
