This Antique Grand George III Style Mahogany Bookcase was hand crafted from in late 19th century England, as a revival of the18th century style. In the upper section, the two large doors are each set with a distinctive pattern of individual wooden glazing bars that enclose thirteen separate pieces of antique rolled glass notable for its wavy reflection. This particular type of glazing pattern is known as "astragal" and is closely associated with the designs of Thomas Chippendale. Behind each of the upper cabinet doors is a series of shelves that may be adjusted to accommodate a variety of objects or books. The rare scale of this particular cabinet tells it was custom-made and speaks of individual hand-crafted quality and uniqueness. The elegantly carved shell design on the feet adds a nice touch!

Circa 1890s
