19th Century French Renaissance Bookcase is a master work of the woodcarver's art!  Bold full relief carvings from the crown to the massive base molding include an heraldic crest, foliates, musical instruments and a cartographer's tools, indicating the interests of the family who commissioned its creation.  The leaded pane display glass on the doors is surrounded by hand-carved framework, with turned & tapered columns on the cornerposts supported by corbels and della robia carvings.  Even the four side panels are carved in intaglio style with intricate patterns and foliate motifs!
Circa 1850s
