We date this bookcase cabinet to the second half of the 19th century. The bookcase cabinet comes in three sections: the bookcase top, the cabinet base and a separate cornice. The bookcase sits on a slightly protruding plain plinth base and the cornice is of stepped design with a band of dentil moulding. The front of the top bookcase is of two panel design with each panel being a side hinged glazed door. The doors are astral glazed with numerous individual bevel edge glass panes. The right hand door is fitted with a working lock (key supplied). The left hand door is secured with side mounted lever bolts. The interior of the cabinet is fitted with three height adjustable, full width wooden shelves. The shelves sit on wooden rails that sit within a series of notches in the side panels. The base section comprises of a large secretaire drawer over a double side hinged door cupboard. The drawer has a recessed central panel and is fitted with decorative cast brass drop handles mounted on shapely brass backplates. The secretaire drawer has a lock and the front drops down to reveal the fitted interior. This comprises of a bank of pigeon holes in the centre and flanked by a bank of three drawers to each side. The cupboard doors have embossed central panels which feature decoratively carved foliate detail. The right hand door is fitted with a working lock (key supplied). The left hand door is secured with side mounted lever bolts. The interior of the cupboard is fitted with a single, removable wood shelf. The bookcase cabinet has an overall height of 94.5"(240cm), a base cabinet height of 39" (99cm), a cornice width of 50" (127cm), a cornice depth of 14.5" (37cm), a base cabinet width of 48.5" (123cm) and a cabinet depth of 20.5" (52cm). The top bookcase has a depth of 12" (30cm). This lovely Victorian mahogany bookcase cabinet remains in very good solid condition with only minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage, including some minor indentations and wear to the finish. The cornice has a little bit of wear to the top edge and there are a few slightly heavier indentations to the finish. The green baize on the drop flap is showing a bit of wear with some minor stains and marks. The finish has mellowed very slightly over time and there is some minor wear to some edges of the cabinet. There is a repair to the moulding on the outer right hand side base of the top section and to the moulding on the outer left hand side of the base section. The outer left hand side of the base section has a slight age split. This remains a very stylish and elegant large tall Victorian mahogany bookcase cabinet which will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
