An Arts & Crafts Oak Bookcase with Inlaid Glasgow Roses
With three inlaid panels to the gallery, of Glasgow roses and other floral motifs, this oak bookcase is a fine piece of Arts & Crafts design and construction. The six upper panels of the glazed doors are of convex glass and the doors themselves have exposed pegs at their joints. There is extensive chequer banding and dentil moulding and the shelves are adjustable by means of rails on either side.
96.5cm wide, 38cm deep and 146.5cm high. Internally, the shelves are 27cm deep.
In overall very good and original condition. The glazing, locks, keys and metalware are all original. There is a small crack near the front foot of one side, some of the chequer banding has raised and been replaced and one internal shelf has warped, though these imperfections do not detract from the overall attractiveness and usefulness of the item.
