Arts And Crafts Bookcase
Beautiful unusual bookcase with central small leaded glass cupboard, copper hinges and handle. A fine rod runs along the very top edge shelf to support small books. It is in great condition with no bad marks or scratches you would probably expect with age, it has a lovely sheen and patina to the polish, we have looked after it all these years. I describe it as a bookcase but it could be used as a display stand, we used it as combination of books and objects/china in the dining room. There is a small hole in the bottom right corner at the back of the cupboard where someone has put a wire through probably, easily fixed, I always meant to do it, when it's got items in you don't see it anyway, it doesn't detract at all. It is very unusual and'very' Arts & Crafts, I haven't seen another like it, so much so I've always had a feeling / hoped it was made by one of the famous makers or designers as a one off, Shapland & Petter for example, but I can't find any markings on it. A fine piece of furniture if Arts & Crafts is your thing. Dimensions are, 140 cm wide, 160 cm high, 30 cm deep. The item "Arts And Crafts Bookcase" is in sale since Sunday, September 9, 2018.
