£36.00 3 Bids Sold, £2.80 Shipping, 14-Day Returns

Seller: neiljfinn (471) 100%, Location: Leicester, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 302150196034 Victorian glass fronted display unit or bookcase. I was told by the previous owner that this came from an old Chemists Shop in Cardiff. It is constructed from mahogany and is a well-built, solid piece of furniture. It could be used as is as a 'shabby chic' piece, but would benefit from a good clean. Alternatively with minor repairs and refinishing it would be a stunning antique, ideally suited to a period home or shop setting. There is some damage to the veneer on the base unit, which could be easily repaired. One end of the base unit has been cut down slightly to fit into a tight space, but this isn't particularly detrimental. The upper section is solid mahogany but has a later hardboard back which I would replace. The lower section has no back. Dimensions are as follows: Base: 137cm wide (54 inches x 25cm deep (10 inches) x 91cm high (26 inches). Top: 122cm wide (48 inches) x 23cm deep (9 inches) x 138cm high (54.5 inches). Please note the overall height is 2.30m (90.5 inches or 7 foot 6.5 inches) which may be taller than the ceiling height in some modern houses! Apologies for the quality of the photos, these are the best shots I could get. Feel free to come and view if you want a better idea of size and quality. This has been languishing in my (dry) greenhouse for about 2 years now gathering dust and spiders and I've decided that its now time for it to go. There are 7 original adjustable mahogany shelves in the upper part and 2 fixed pine shelves (non-original I think) in the lower part - these are not shown in the photos but are included in the sale. It is therefore listed at a low starting price with no reserve. I can deliver within 10 miles of Leicester LE5 5DG for a flat fee of £10 and may be able to deliver within 20 miles for an agreed fee to cover fuel costs. Email me before the auction end with your post code for a delivery quotation. Beyond 20 miles feel free to send your own courier and I will assist with loading. Any questions please ask, viewings welcome. Cash on collection / delivery preferred, though paypal accepted as an alternative. Product Type: Bookcases, Original/Reproduction: Original, Age: 1800-1899, Material: Mahogany
