Grand 19th Century Italian Walnut Neoclassical Bookcase is a study in the artistic sculpture of Northern Italy.  Sculpted in solid, sumptuous walnut, it features wildlife scenes which appear at the bottom door panels in glorious full relief, and the architecture of the piece recalls the glory days of ancient Greek and Roman designers.  The intricacies of the molded detailing are astounding to behold, and include timeless egg & dart, rosettes in a Greek coin pattern, and fletching.  A pair of elegant tapered, reeded and fluted columns flank the center display with rounded capitals connecting to the impressive crown. Soaring over 9 feet in height, and open ~ which is unusual for such a piece ~ it will command attention from all who enter the room!
Circa 1860s
