PLEASE BE AWARE THAT DELIVERIES WILL BE DELAYED UNTIL SOCIAL DISTANCING RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED... We are established importers of fine French furniture, Please visit our shop at. The decoration is very good and a mixture of Gothic and Neo Classical with reeded pillars on either side of the door. The door panels are typical of the period and depict "The arts" with a pallet and brushes carved on one and musical instruments on the other.The condition is fair considering it's had more than a century of use... There's a slight gap at the top of the doors and the door beading is chipped in places, The backboards have shrunk slightly and the lock and key aren't original. None of these things detract from the piece and shrinkage and small signs of wear are usual in antique furniture. I only mention these points as I like to be totally honest with my descriptions..
All in all it's a very good and imposing piece of antique furniture and will give you loads of storage. It's a full 242 cms high x 154 cms wide to the cornice overhang while the carcass is 140cms wide. The depth of the bookcase is 40 cms or 47cms including the pillars. The shelves are made from heavy pitch pine while the rest of the piece is solid oak.
