STUNNING LARGE LOUIS XV STYLE GLAZED BOOKCASE. This is a very impressive looking French bookcase / display cabinet we unearthed recently near Limoges, France. It is very large with cupboards and an open display section. It could be used as a display cabinet, a bookcase or a combination of the two. The outer top cupboards are glazed at the top, the inner is open.There is lots of lovely Louis XV Neoclassical carving to the top. Full height reeded columns to the sides and in-between the cupboard doors. Across the bottom are three cupboards with a central shelf. The top sections each have two shelves, these are fully adjustable for height. It has been painted in grey chalk paint over a white base. Where it has been aged and distressed this allows the white to show through in places. It breaks down into four sections for transportation and for ease of getting it into your home. The top lifts off and the rest splits into three vertical sections. It re-assembles with brass bolts to join the sections and with screws at the rear of the top section. Complete with it's five original keys, two with added tassels. It is very nice quality, probably around 30-35 years old. Collection is possible direct from the courier in Dorset by arrangement on Saturday mornings only between 9:30am-1:00pm.
