Circa 1900, exhibition quality Chippendale style mahogany cabinet bookcase. The bookcase has a very stylish and sophisticated horn top cornice with carved foliate on the horns finishing in a lovely curl, held in place by mahogany open fretwork with a raised centre section perhaps for a vase or ornament. Beneath this is a stylish Greek key and an ogee moulding, and two stylish glazed doors with flame mahogany frames. Inside is a polished interior with 3 adjustable shelves with shaped facings. Beneath the flat surface is a tear drop carving which runs around the front and sides, and two fielded panelled doors with rounded corners and a raised panel with quarter matching veneers in the centre. These open to reveal a large mahogany adjustable shelf. At the base is a double moulded edge and an enclosed plinth. The top has an overlap to accommodate skirting boards or dado rails. The whole piece has good colour and patination.
