Item Description

Vintage 1930s Glazed Oak Bookcase Astrola of London No 2744


One of a group of 8, this one number 2744 is seeking its permanent home after a 10 month spell in a show apartment in London, the other 7 rest long gone to new homes…


A great looking oak glazed library bookcase by Astrola of London with the little number 2744 to the front. We would say it's from around the 1930s with the design and hardware echoing this well. The grain and tone of the oak is good with a pleasing glow.


Workshop report – The bookcase survives in good order – the glass is repair, crack free and original. The interior possesses two adjustable oak faced shelves which are clean and tidy. The oak top does have a historic mark, stain, old and part of its history and we also have a few small nibbles to the rear bases of the sides – not nasty or particularly ugly. The doors close as they should with a latch.We have cleaned the insides and lightly waxed the good oak frame. Expect genuine historic wear.  


A great piece of good looking British early 20th Century industrial furniture.
