Product Description & More Photos

A magnificent antique French vitrine bookcase buffet or sideboard in Louis XV Style. This is an extremely heavy and solid old French piece. We should for accuracy reasons mention some anomalies. We removed old red fabric lining from the interior which had many tacks and nails or various sizes - we have removed most of them but some were in very tight and are still there which is difficult to notice. The two top shelves are of two lengths each in the French manner and are bowed so do not sit completely straight. The shelf on the left in the bottom section has been put in slightly at an angle and as this is a fixed shelf we did not want to try and fix and will leave that to the new owner if it is of concern. There are three drawers in the centre which are very heavy and of thick timber. Again mentioned for accuracy reasons the top drawer is 1cm short of closing fully. This has the original old glass doors. And the left side has a few scratches. We have no key for this bookcase and the locks are extremely old. The front of the left door has a round finger sized hole shown in a photo which does not go all the way through. There are some old and long gone borer holes but all out furniture is treated by Government regulations upon arrival from France so this is of no concern. After noting all this please remember this is a very early piece in its wonderful antique used condition. It should not even try to be a pristine piece :)
