Edwardian Mahogany & Inlaid Sheraton Revival Astragal-Glazed Bookcase on Cabinet Base

A fine mahogany & inlaid Sheraton Revival bookcase on cabinet base from the beginning of the 20thC and in very good condition, with astragal-glazed, cross-banded and strung door that has a working lock & key, within strung & cross-banded cabinet with moulded plinth, surmounted by a scrolled split pediment with floral bosses, over projecting ogee moulding and dentils, over a frieze with meander inlay, over a bead moulding, the bookcase resting on a cabinet with a single panelled door that has a working lock & key, an oval central shell inlay within cross-banded & strung frame, cross-banded & strung side panels with central blind ovals and a similarly inlaid top with ogee-moulded edge to the front & sides, all on a moulded base and bracket feet to all four corners, this lovely bookcase will impress in the most elegant of period-furnished homes, fully-deserving of the admiring attention it will undoubtedly attract.

Width of Base Cabinet 69.5cm x Depth 48cm (27.25" x 19") but 71.75cm x 48.75 (28.25" x 19.25") at the Bracket Feet
Width of Bookcase 66cm x Depth 22.5cm (26" x 9") but 71.5cm x 25cm (28.15" x 9.85") at the Pediment
Height to Top of Cabinet Base 78cm (30.75") & Height O/All, incl. Pediment 184.5cm (72.75")

This piece dates from around the first decade of the 20thC, so you may expect the mature character & patina of age, together with wear & tear commensurate with normal use, including a small loss to the central motif of the pediment and some deterioration of the glazing 'putty' within the bookcase but, in all other respects, it's in very good, clean & sound condition and ready to use in your home.

NB: The bookcase has two removable shelves and is detachable from the base cabinet for ease of movement and the base cabinet has a single mid-height shelf.
