North Wales Victorian Mahogany Bookcase.

Good sized mid 19th.c. mahogany veneered pine bookcase of the kind produced by North Wales cabinet makers c.1850. Two door glazed bookcase top with original glass and period block printed wallpaper lining above a two door base with a single drawer in the waist.
Responding to the tastes of the time many local furniture makers abandoned the tradition of oak furniture in the mid 19th.c. in favour of the more fashionable mahogany. The oversized cornice, shaped drawer front and heavy arch panel doors are typical of this ‘new’ style.  Excellent condition. Cleaned and polished in our workshops. Key supplied.
