A large French vintage Louis XV style painted two-part bookcase with glass doors, custom-made for a client in 1978. This French bibliothèque features a dark grey painted cornice, sitting above a breakfront façade. The central section showcases two glass doors in the upper level, adorned with curvy motifs typical of the Louis XV era. Two cabinets, smaller in size, flank this central accent. The four doors open to reveal multiple inner shelves, perfect to receive a variety of books. A dark grey molding separates the two levels and conceals a pull-out drawer. The lower section echoes the same structure on a smaller scale, sans the glass doors. The regular accentuation of dark grey highlights the beauty of the light grey finish used on the ensemble. With its great proportions and elegant Louis XV lines showing a subtle contemporary edge, this French bibliothèque from 1978 will be an excellent choice for any living room, office or library.
