19th Century French Napoleon III Period Grand Neoclassical Stripped Oak Bookcase was hand-crafted from solid old-growth quarter-sawn white oak, and features a massive arched crown that soars to nine and a half feet tall, plus a full eight feet in width!  Aside from the magnificently rendered heraldic heart-shaped crest with foliates, florals and shell motifs that presides over the piece from the heights of the arch, it has subtle embellishments elsewhere appearing on the frameworks and cabinet doors.  Glazed and mirrored upper panes allow light to reflect back into the room, and when the three big doors are opened, it reveals an amazingly ergonomic interior with drawers, hangbing pegs, and shelving.  Truly a masterwork of the cabinetmaker's art!

Circa 1870s
