    pair walnut regency sheraton open front bookcases

    CLICK HERE TO VIEW A VIDEO OF THIS PRODUCT

    You are looking at a pair of English Sheraton style openfront bookcases hand crafted from the finest walnut. This lovely pair are the perfect mix of decorative beauty and practical functionality to make for a vintage design classic. They look great in any room and they are able to store lots of items.
    Ostensibly they are bookcases but of course you can use them to hold other items, they look particuarly good with decorative items - statues, vases etc - in them. However, for myself, being the bookish type I have a pair in my home with nothing but lovely, fading works of literature in them.
    The shelves are adjustable to suit meaty tomes or smaller paperbacks. The shelves work on a slat system so you can adjust them to whatever height you like for whatever you like, from ''War and Peace'' to the ''World''s Smallest Book of Poetry'' these bookcases are perfect.
    The open fronts are Sheraton style, main body is walnut polished to a
    high sheen with solid shelves The inlay is made from various fruitwoods - satinwood, rosewood, applewood - to create a beautiful affect. The fruitwoods are softer hence there use as inlay within the harder mahogany. The level of the craftmanship on these is absolutely superb, both strucurally in that they are very solid, and also with the intricacy of the inlay.
    The close up pictures of the inlay work hopefully illustrates the level of craftmanship with patterns of scrolling branches, urns and flower motifs. They would be the highlight of any room and due to their solid construction will last for many generations more.
    They are in perfect conditon structurally and they have just come back from the restorers where they were repolished so they are ready for home use straight away.
    Dimensions:
    Height 82” - 208cm
    Width 39” - 99cm
    Depth 12.5 “ - 32 cm
