Traditional and stylish Victorian Open Bookcase with four adjustable shelves (can be ordered with extra shelf if required). This mahogany bookcase has some interesting carved features. Down each side there are carved grooves or fluting giving some definition to the edges. Above this and each side are carved mahogany corbels standing proud of the main body. These are perhaps the most distinctive feature. More detailed carving in the form of a castle turret pattern runs along the front edge of the cornice.
Height: 210 Width: 110 Depth: 45 (sizes are approximate).
These pictures shows one of these Victorian open bookcase before it has had its final sanding and before the colour stain is applied. Note the very light pink colour of mahogany in its natural state.
The sides of the bookcase have two panels so the side view is also very appealing.
As well as the sides the back is panelled into eight sections. See picture below. This reduces the possibility of any undesirable wood movement and at the same time is very attractive. Note also in the picture of the back panel the edges are darker -this is the pre staining so that if the panel does its job and shrinks there is no ‘white’ line visible.
