19th Century Country French Vitrine ~ Bookcase is a magnificent expression of the cabinetmaker's art, with extraordinary artistry from the arched crown centered with a carved shell cartouche in the Florentine manner set atop an archer's bow crown, all the way down to the four graceful cabriole legs.  An intriguing glazed bonnet is framed by the casework and centered with carved detailing, appearing above the carved shell and foliate motifs surrounding the upper tier's triple paned door.  Carved lower panels exhibiting shell and foliate motifs complement the top tier, making this ideal for showing of your most prized possessions above, and discreetly storing other items below.
