Incorporating a twin-plank top with a floral carved moulding, the Victorian oak bookcase is decorated profusely with 17th century style carvings and blind fretwork, along the moulded top, frame, plinth and side of the bookcase. It was fashionable during the Victorian period to replicate furniture in the style of earlier period, especially with 17th carvings.

The wooden support bars can be moved up or down to adjust the height of each shelf. The bookcase stands on a carved moulded plinth and bracket feet, and retains its original backboards.

Delivery times are usually 1-4 weeks depending on location; we aim to deliver the majority of items within 2 weeks. All items are professionally packaged and fully insured in transit, therefore, we can assure you, your items will be securely protected in transit and arrive safely with you.
Once you have purchased an item, we will contact you by email and/or telephone and provide you with a provisional delivery date, in order for you to confirm if it is suitable for you. Once you have confirmed you can accept delivery on the provisional delivery date, we will book the delivery in with our shippers and it then becomes a confirmed delivery date.
We will also provide you with our shippers’ contact details, in case you need to contact the driver on the day of delivery. It’s helpful if you can provide us with both the landline and mobile telephone number, in case the driver cannot reach you on one of the numbers on the day of delivery, they can contact you on your alternative number.
In order to be able to offer you free delivery, it is based on a 1-man delivery only. For any large items that require 2 people to lift the item, we ask that you are available at the time of delivery to be able to give our shipper a lift off the van and into your house with the item.
