This Spectacular Victorian Mahogany Shop / Apothecary Bookcase dates from circa, 1870
Back in the day pharmacists at the neighbourhood apothecary crammed their lotions and potions in cabinets that took full advantage of every nook and cranny available. This fantastic bookcase has a moulded cornice above two large glazed doors with the lovely original glass with key in working lock. The interior has three adjustable shelves. The upper section has shaped brackets with open section which was most probably used for serving and a wonderful secretaire drawer with flamed mahogany central panels and beautifully turned handles. The interior has a green baize surface and several pigeon holes. This spectacular bookcase has two lower beautifully figured cupboard doors with a fixed left hand interior shelf and two deep drawers with flush brass handles on the right hand interior. The cupboard doors also benefit from the key with working lock, stands majestically on a plain plinth and has been constructed from the finest mahogany timbers. This huge bookcase splits into two sections aiding transportation. The mahogany has aged to a rich shade with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
