Sculpted from fine French Walnut, this impressive 19th Century French Henri II Bookcase, or bibliotheque features a boldly carved scallop shell comprising a graceful arch to form the crown, flanked by scrolled corbels. Tapered and turned columns create a framework for the doors below which are glazed with stained & leaded glass rounds. Below the glazing appear two full relief carvings of heraldic crests. A full width drawer with brass pulls appears just above the base molding and bun feet.
