(This charming bookcase is absolutely typical of the Mid 18th Century 
when the master craftsman Thomas Chippendale was working his cabinet
making magic and many other talented cabinet makers were following 
then trying to imitate his designs and styles. Dating to around 1760 it 
has real elegance for a large case piece of furniture and it retains a quite 
exceptional rich colour and patina. The solid blind panel doors are much
rare than the more regularly found glazed panel doors and we think that 
they are a great addition allowing for whatever items you wish to store in 
top section to be tucked away out of site with the simple closing of the doors)

Circa 1760
