Bespoke Vintage 1940s Tiger Oak Glazed Bookcase We Have 2

Privately commissioned in the 1940s we have a rather good looking and beautifully made glazed bookcase finished with “tiger” quarter cut oak to the sides and fronts – a great look.

We like these a lot - that angled front and build quality do it for us. The deep oak plinth supports an angled glazed sliding door for storage of books and the like – the shelf being adjustable. Above this is a stouter glazed sliding door offering storage. Both are the same and gives you the opportunity to purchase a pair if required.

Workshop report – The bookcases survive in fine order. The oak is a pleasing golden tone and the grain is interesting and fine. The glass doors are working well with no chips or cracks to the glass. Both bookcases have the original oak shelves within which are adjustable if required. Expect sensible day to day tarnishing and the odd mark or two. Both smell fine and are ready to place being sensible in proportions.

A great looking pair of stylish British oak bookcases.

Price is for one delivered not both.

Dimensions - Overall: Height 94.5cm x Width 91.5cm x Depth 30cm

Billy Hunt is an independent partnership based in a wonderful Victorian Farming Buiding once used to stable Dray Horses for Bass Brewery and with the assistance of technology, enjoys serving customers nationally and internationally. The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We choose to source across the UK believing that the British Isles offers a splendid mix of fine quality, true eccentricity, creative design and exceptional craftsmanship which very few can equal.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing. You will notice when viewing our collection, we are not afraid to evolve furniture, recognise the need to modernise but are also content to leave “as found” aiming to create a piece or pieces that are beautiful, distinctive and a delight to live with.

Our wish is to show you some wonderful items that you would love to own and offer a service which is personal, professional, considerate and a pleasurable experience. You are able to view our stock in person by appointment, just contact us to arrange a convenient time here.
