You are viewing a single English Sheraton style openfront bookcase hand crafted from the finest mahogany. This lovely piece is the perfect mix of decorative beauty and practical functionality to make for a vintage design classic. It would look great in any room and it\'s able to store lots of items. I have a similar one in my study and they are just a superb practical piece as well as being aesthetically very pleasing.
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 mahogany 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. It would be the highlight of any room and due to their solid construction will last for many generations hence making them a great investment.
It is in perfect conditon structurally and has just come back from the restorers where it was repolished so it\'s ready for home use straight away.
