moreA fine example of the understated elegance of much nineteenth century French pine furniture, this tall and slender bookcase has been in this dealer's family for the last twenty years, and we rarely acquire such pieces now. Beneath a classic French ogee crown molding with chamfered corners are two long two-thirds glazed doors with flat panels at the bottom. The chamfered corner runs down the piece and ends in molded feet, which mimic the crown in reverse. Between the front feet is a single long and shallow hand-cut dovetailed drawer, the drawer front disguised as a base molding. The interior is fitted with four shelves, three fully adjustable on original wooden sawtooth track, and one fixed and fitted with an original spring catch, which secures the left-hand door. The right hand door closes on a replaced lock. There is evidence that the doors were once fitted with fiche hinges but the wide-swinging butt hinges that replaced them are many decades old.
In very good sturdy condition with wear consistent with age and use and hand-waxed to a warm honey glow.
