19th Century French Faux Bamboo Bookcase ~ Vitrine is a special example of French craftsmanship, designed to emulate Far Eastern designs during the popularity for all things Oriental that occurred in Europe during the period.  This example is unusual since it is only 33 inches wide in total, including molding, yet has two side by side glazed doors which open to reveal three adjustable shelves and a floor for four display and storage surfaces.  Two full width drawers below that only add to the storage possibilities.  An unusually shallow design makes it very traffic-friendly.  The exterior simulates bamboo by carefully shaping maple to create columns, finials and trim work and combining that with pine panels for a light and airy effect.  Part of a set, the remaining pieces are still available as of this writing.  See Related Products below left.
