MAPLE & CO Antique VICTORIAN CARVED MAHOGANY BOOKCASE Wardrobe Drawers Shelves
Victorian Bookcase and Wardrobe with an impressive amount of storage space, from Maple & Company.
We are pleased to present this large Mahogany Bookcase and Wardrobe from Maple & Company for your consideration. It features Shelves behind glass on both the left and right side, with a center section containing a variety of Drawers, plus a Cabinet at top which is divided into two Shelves. The compartment on the left side currently contains Shelves, but has original hanging hardware underneath a Shelf near the top (see picture 12). The removal of some of the lower Shelves would allow garments to be hung as originally designed. Both the left and right compartments have glass doors, with beautifully beveled edges (see picture 5). The piece dates to the Victorian era.
The Bookcase measures 91 inches high, 81-1/4 inches wide, and 23-1/2 inches deep. We estimate the total weight at 200 pounds, but the unit breaks apart into three main pieces, plus the crown and base, simplifying transport considerably.
The condition of the Bookcase / Wardrobe is good to very good. There are some areas with moderate wear, but the piece presents well in its current condition. The top of the base shows wear to the finish where the two doors have rubbed against it when opened and closed. There are many minor signs of wear, consistent with the age of the piece, but nothing that stands out as a significant defect. Both glass door panels are intact and in good shape. Hardware looks to be original in most cases, although the strip of molding that separates the two cabinet doors at center top looks to be a replacement. All pictures show the actual piece you will receive.
This is one of the larger Bookcase / Wardrobes you will find, with an enormous amount of protected storage behind glass and within drawers. It may be just the storage solution you are looking for!
