Antique Bookcases

During the 18th & 19th centuries a formal education was incredibly expensive and beyond the reach of the vast majority of the populace. Books were similarly expensive, as was the cases to store them. For this reason the antique bookcase, or bibliotheque in France, is not common at all. However, with our buying power, we are able to obtain a wide variety of antique bookcases for your enjoyment and daily use, transforming a room, office or library into a special place that reflects your style and refinement.

We have multiple options to choose from within our vast inventory of antique furniture, with many on display at our two antique stores that boast over 50,000 square feet of showroom space. Our antique bookcases will immediately add that touch of elegance in any space and will complete the overall design of a room in an instant.
