Item # LFALO1357
Intricately carved 19th century Renaissance style low bookcase rendered from select oak by skilled artisans from the Brittany region. Stepped crown atop a carved frieze over original three-quarter glass doors with single drawer below, raised on bun feet. Interior with two fitted, adjustable shelves. This bookcase features very well-articulated carvings in high relief of vines, acanthus leaves, ribbon swags and griffin heads that speak of a higher standard of craftsmanship that existed for those in the affluent class of mid-19th century Europe. Only the affluent could afford an education and books, which were very expensive at the time, as well as a home grand enough for such a bookcase. Crown is not removable.
