Antique French Walnut Wood Lyonnaise Bookcase

This large piece is likely from the Rhone Valley around Lyon, but could also be from a bit more south toward Provence. It’s construction is late 1800’s, turn of the century, using much older elements mixed with more recent woods for the shelves, framing, back, etc. It’s a very impressive bookcase. This beautiful French walnut wood bibliotheque has a frontage of five doors, three stepped out at the center and two stepped in on either side. The upper central section is open with three shelves and the narrower sides have glassed in doors. The central section’s frieze is stepped out with a serpentine motif and a center shell motif. The sides have three raised beveled rectangular panels each. The entire piece rests upon a continuous panel to the floor.

CONDITION: Good Antique Condition, old restorations, nicks, minor losses to motifs; old wormwood commensurate with age..
