Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The lower section with very well figured fall with inside a velvet writing surface, hidden well and a bank of concave fronted drawers and pigeon holes. Below the fall are two short and two long drawers divided by double cock-beaded mouldings and banded with herringbone inlay. The bookcase stands on turned bun feet.
This magnificent bookcase, which retains particularly good colour, benefits greatly from the cabinet makers attention to detail. The burr walnut veneers have all been carefully selected for their figure. All its original brass handles and escutcheons have been engraved and it retains the most attractive hinges to the upper doors.
Particularly unusual are the mouldings that define the shape of the domes. This shape might be described as a ‘hipped’ dome, but it is also the depth of these mouldings and the sweeping movement that they create that is so special. The quality of this work is far above that seen on most bookcases of this early age.
