Exquisite Antique Dutch Bookcase / Display Cabinet. This is an exceptional antique bookcase we sourced last week in Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
It is a really beautiful piece with glazed doors and lots of lovely decorative detail. The centre section has an arched top with carved decorative piece to the top. There are flat ribbed columns to the sides with central bulls-eye trims.Acanthus leaf finials at the top on each side. Too much detail to describe everything!
At the base of each of the thinner glass sections are those lovely square panels with fretwork decoration. The drawer front has lovely quarter-fold veneer panels. Standing on bun feet, there are also superb, very ornate brass handles and escutcheons.Complete with two original keys which are fully functioning. Both the doors and the drawer lock. There are two doors with one door taking in two glass panels. Similarly, although there appear to be three drawers it is actually one full width drawer. Solid hardwood with veneer to the drawer fronts, solid pine shelves.
The shelves are adjustable for height. Somebody has fixed some of the shelf supports in place, but it is only one screw if you want to move them. In very nice condition, obviously a well loved piece.
One small nibble from trim beneath the acanthus leaf right side. Antique so please expect some signs of age and use. The top lifts off and sits on dowels. A couple of the dowels are missing, easy to replace but not necessary as it doesn't affect it in any way.Height: 77.25 (196.5cm). Shelf depth: 11.75 (29.5cm). Collection is possible from the courier's depot in Sturminster Newton on Saturday mornings only 9.30am-1.30pm.
