THIS ITEM IS LOCATED IN OUR ORLANDO, FLORIDA FACILITY. Probably the finest Victorian, closed 3-door walnut bookcase you can find, and one of the largest too. This one dates to 1880, if not a little earlier, and is probably from Belgium. Absolutely stunning craftsmanship and extremely well put together. Door frames are over 1" thick. 3 adjustable height shelves in each of the 3 compartments. 2 of the original keys are present and the locks are working correctly. This is a fairly common key and can easily be replaced. Concealed door hinges - something you seldom see - and they are all functioning correctly. Doors open,close and lock smoothly.
Cabinet is solid walnut with beautiful veneering, cartouches and applied moldings. This cabinet is in 100% original finish which is excellent - the finish has never alligatored. There are a couple of chips in the base molding as should be expected with a piece of furniture this age. I also noted a couple of droplets of white paint here and there on the baseboard molding, but nothing a little fine steel wool cant take care of. Never any termite, insect, water damage or mildew smells, the interior is clean as a whistle with no musty smells. The only modification to the cabinet is that we placed 4 concealed nylon rollers - safe for any floor surface - below the base - a good idea if you ever want to clean behind it. Glass appears to be original, shelving appears to be original, but all or most of the wooden shelf brackets are most likely replacements - you cant see them anyway.
We do have other pictures available and your questions will be promptly answered - This is a big cabinet and pick-ups are welcome, it will easily fit in a van or pickup truck. Sales to the lower 48 only. We accept personal checks and Paypal.
