Antique French Oak Regence Style Bibliotheque, Circa 1860

This fabulous antique French oak double bibliotheque recently came from an Estate in Nice, France. Although it has a large width of just over 10 feet, it has a very shallow depth of only 16 inches. This is not common in antique case pieces. The motifs on the piece are relatively small, but the detail and quality of the carving is delicate and very well done. Each one is slightly different from the others but all are similar in shape. The bookcase has stepped out canted corners, center moldings between doors, and a stepped-out panel at the center section between the two sets of doors. Below the original glass doors are a total of 4 doors for additional storage. The canted corners are adorned with masks, stylized shells, and intricately carved vines with flowers.

Beautiful to see in a prominent part of the home, this antique double bookcase from France will be a focal point in any area.

CONDITION:  Very good antique condition with previous minor restorations, inside hardware has been changed at some point, age separations.
