Unusual Edwardian Bookcase.

30 years in the trade and we must admit to never having seen another bookcase quite like this one before. With a glazed two door top over a considerably wider two door cupboard base it does look a little strange. Yet despite the unusual proportions it is not a marriage – note how the reeded detail beside the doors is repeated in the base. Possibly originally made for commercial or office use rather than a domestic piece with the wider base affording a useful bit of counter space.  Lots of unusual detail here; mirrored sides presumably to reflect lamp light, a shaped front profile to the bookcase top (bowing out as it rises), bobbin turned spindles to the cornice repeated as supports in a recess between the top and base, also with mirrored panels and geometic panelled doors to the base. With a maker’s label for the Liverpool company Drury & Hobrough. Presented here in good solid but unrestored condition.
Dimensions: width 56″, depth 21″, height 90″.
