Antique French Ebonized Louis XVI Bookcase

Antique French Ebonized Louis XVI Style Bookcase, circa 1900

Antique French Ebonized Louis XVI Bookcase
Antique French Louis XVI style ebonized bookcase, or as the French would all it, a bibliotheque. Our old plank workshop completely disassembled the bookcase and hand scraped and hand sanded the solid mahogany cabinet, before sending it into our finishing department. Once in finishing we slowly applied multiple layers of dark brown and black penetrating stains which have given the bookcase an almost ebonized finish. I say almost ebonized, because we allowed for the brown tones to show through, which in turn makes the bookcase look warmer, much as an original ebonized finish would do.
