A French Louis-Philippe style walnut bookcase from the late 19th century with glass doors, drawers and wooden doors. This French two-part walnut bibliothèque features a molded cornice sitting above four glass doors opening to reveal adjustable shelves offering great opportunities to store books and various decorative objects. The lower section of this upper cabinet presents 10 small dovetailed drawers each opening thanks to elegant pulls, except for the central ones on each side that are adorned with intricate escutcheons. The lower cabinet, deeper in proportions, is made of four molded doors, whose linearity compliments the pure lines of the piece beautifully. With its exquisite walnut patina and clean silhouette, this French bookcase, circa 1890 will bring a touch of elegance to any home, particularly in an office, library or living room.
