Incorporating a single plank mahogany moulded top, the Victorian bookcase is decorated with scribe moulded columns. The scribe decoration is also visible on the shelf fronts and two-door panels below. The open recess comprises two adjustable mahogany shelves, secured by the original wooden pegs, allowing the shelves to be moved up or down to adjust the height of each shelf. Below the open shelves are two fielded panel cupboard doors; ideal for storing paperwork or other objects. The left-hand door retains the original brass sliding bolt, and the right-hand door retains its original brass lever lock (with working key) and original external brass drop-ring handle. The Victorian mahogany bookcase stands on its original block moulded plinth.
This Victorian bookshelf boasts its lovely mellow colour. The bookcase has been cleaned and French polished, by hand, to a professional standard in our workshop. Therefore, the colour and patination are of an excellent standard, along with age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the office, library or living room. It would certainly grace any home and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional.

Free UK Delivery*:
We offer free delivery to mainland England, Wales, and Southern Scotland (anywhere south of Stirling). *We do not offer free delivery to locations north of Stirling in Scotland, Northern Ireland, or any British Islands off the mainland; for example, the Isle of Man, Isle of White and Channel Islands. If you live in one of the areas where we do not offer free delivery, please contact us for a delivery quote before purchasing the item. Delivery will be made by our specialised antique furniture delivery service, or in some cases we will use a courier service for distant deliveries.
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. If you are not able to lift items yourself, we ask that you have someone on hand at the time of delivery to assist our shipper with lifting the item.
Free 14 Days UK Returns & Refunds:
A free 14-day “no quibble” returns policy (from the date you receive the item) is available if you are not happy with this item.

We will collect returns using our own specialist furniture delivery company. We will not accept returns via a courier service (due to experience of damaged items in transit).
