Antique French Bookcase or Display Cabinet

Antique French Bookcase or Display Cabinet, circa 1815-1830

Antique French Bookcase or Display Cabinet
French mahogany bookcase, extraordinaire is the best term I can think of to accurately describe this immense bibliotheque. Our Old Plank workshop spent over 200 hours rebuilding the carcass and then it went into the finishing for a traditional hand applied French polish. This is only one of a few cabinets that we have seen with solid brass bars dividing the glass panes, which really gives it an extra bit of elegance. All shelves are fully adjustable and the entire bookcase disassembles for easier ingress and egress into your home or office. This particular piece was made during the Restauration period of French furniture, which dates from 1815-1830, or right after Empire and just prior to Louis Philippe.
