A stunning George III Chippendale period two-door mahogany veneered glazed bookcase of large proportions.
The upper section has two 13 pane astragal glazed doors with moulded glazing bars in the manner of Thomas Chippendale, which open via a rosette formed brass knob to reveal sliding adjustable shelves, below a fine dentil moulded cornice topped by a swan-neck pediment with carved rosette terminals, again typically associated with Thomas Chippendale.
The lower section has a cock beaded lap-dovetailed frieze drawer with historically replaced brass handles, above two panel doors which open to reveal a shelved compartment. The panels have re-entrant corner quadrants, framed by applied moulding, all above four bracket feet within which the original wooden ball castors remain.
The bookcase has a working lock and key for both the upper and lower sections.
A superb example of lovely proportions with outstanding colour and patina.
Width (at widest point): 110.5cm
