Superb Quality Early Victorian Rosewood Breakfront Bookcase C1850

97" wide x 97.5" high x 18" deep

Superb quality Early Victorian Rosewood breakfront bookcase. The upper section of breakfront outline having a stepped and moulded cornice above four glazed doors, opening to reveal an adjustable shelved interior. The lower section again of breakfront outline having the top veneered in striking rosewood veneers, above four panelled doors which have exquisite re-entrant moulded corners, again with beautifully figured rosewood veneers, enclosing adjustable shelves. The whole raised on a rosewood veneered breakfront plinth. Such is the quality of this bookcase, the rosewood veneers have been laid onto the finest quality mahogany and then internally ie. the back of the doors have been painted to simulate the rosewood veneers, a sign of a truly top quality cabinet maker circa 1850

Condition: This bookcase is in completely original condition throughout, a beautiful warm patination which we have enhanced with a waxed finish.
