19th Century French Napoleon III Period Mahogany Bookcase -Vitrine is a marvel of fine artisanry, with elegantly arched crown festooned with hand-carved floral and foliates cascading down to the carved finials on the corner posts.  The slightly step-front lower tier has carved corbel embellishments with rosettes on the door frames.  Glazing appears in the doors above and below, as well as on each side, allowing natural ambient light in which means artificial light is not needed.  What a splendid way to display your most cherished family heirlooms, prized possessions, or family library!

Circa 1860
