19th Century Italian Renaissance Walnut Barrister's Bookcase is a marvel of the cabinetmaker's art!  Designed on a lower scale so the top surface is actually usable, the books or other contents of the interior are also easily accessible while still seated at one's desk.  Elaborately carved on its curved crown, it features a gadrooned top edge, and step-out cornerposts that transition to a pyramidal plinth then to Doric capitals, under which are tapered and fluted columns for a splendid classic architectural touch.  The columns are resting on double plinths below which blend into the baseboard.  Three glazed full-height door panels allow one to view the contents, making this just as splendid for display as it is for book storage!  Hand-crafted from walnut by talented artisans to last for generations.
Circa 1870s
