French Provincial Glazed 2-Door Oak Bookcase

Unavailable
This lovely French provincial style two-door display cabinet or bookcase was made in Paris in the late 19th century. It measures 32.5" wide, 72" high, and 12.75" deep. Interior measures 28.75" wide and 11.5" deep. Stenciled mark on the rear reads " VALLOT " along with a Paris street address which is undecipherable. Features original hardware, working lock and key. Three original adjustable shelves are secured via wooden inserts set into grooves along the sides. Patina is old and it doesn't appear that the piece has been refinished. Overall shots are just a bit overexposed, and our closeups better reflect the true color of the piece. It is not known if the glazed doors feature their original glass. It set resides in a climate-controlled storage facility in northern NJ, and may be seen by appointment.

Additional images gladly forwarded upon request.

This cabinet comes from the collection of Roni Steinberg Sokoloff, and resided in her former 63-acre estate in Bedford New York known as Cantitoe Farms. (Formerly known as Sycamore Farms, the estate was purchased by Martha Stewart in 2000.) The cabinet was purchased by Ms. Sokoloff in the 1980s.
