Dating from around 1860 in the Victorian period this grand mahogany bookcase comes complete with a secretaire drawer. It has a moulded cornice above two glazed doors with key and working lock. The interior benefits from three replacement adjustable shelves. The lower section has a rectangular top above a deep secretaire drawer with moulded edges and original turned handles. The drawer opens, the front folding down, to reveal an interior displaying a tooled leather writing insert, six birds eye maple drawer fronts with small turned handles and several pigeon holes. The base has two beautifully figured cupboard doors with arched mouldings and key with working lock, these are flanked by elegantly scrolled carved corbels. The interior contains a single removable shelf and the whole piece stands on a plain plinth. Although large the piece does split into three sections for ease of removal and is full of charm and character from years of use. It is a rich warm shade of mahogany with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
