Antique French oak bookcase, or as the French would call it, a bibliotheque, but whatever you would like to refer to it as, it was built with quality in mind, probably in the late 1800s. Even the drawer boxes have beautiful French walnut bottoms and are constructed with hand-cut dovetails for extra strength. The three glass doors still maintain their original handmade French wavy glass and all the hardware is correct. Our Old Plank carpentry department, went completely through the bookcase from top to bottom and made sure everything minute detail was up to snuff. After which, we sent the antique bookcase into the Old Plank finishing section and pondered for a moment, before deciding on an old limed finish, that we used to see in France 20-25 years ago. This finish requires a lot more labor, but it gives the old bookcase a fresh and modern twist and it goes with everything. The interior was left natural, but we are not against painting it in an old authentic French color, should you so choose?
