A Large Arts & Crafts Oak Bookcase
'Wisdom Is Better Than Rubies' proclaims the fretwork motto on this large Arts & Crafts bookcase. It is made of solid oak and has leaded, glazed doors, copper strap hinges, a pierced heart and a large alcove beneath. The flattened cornice has shaped brackets underneath and inside it has three adjustable shelves.
107cm wide, 193.5cm high and 40.5cm deep. The shelves measure 25cm in depth and the alcove is 40cm high.
In very good and original condition with its original lock and the key to go with it. A small section, about 1cm in length, of the small 'A' of 'THAN' in the motto is missing.
