Oak Side by Side*
*Figurines, dust, plates, anything else not part of the furniture piece NOT INCLUDED.
We have had this lovely piece of furniture in our home for the past 25 or so years. We originally purchased it from someone who did a really bad refinishing job (incomplete--I can go into great detail, but I prefer at this point to let my pictures speak for the piece). If you have detailed questions that I do not answer in this account, please email and ask.
37" wide by 72" tall by about 12" deep Please bear in mind that all measurements are approximate!
The glass front of the book shelf is curved, and I think it might be original. There is one piece of the decorated top glass that has a crack. See the pictures. There are a couple of escutcheons that are in need of replacing. As it happens, I have a couple that may fit. We can check them and see; if they do, the buyer is welcome to them.
As you can see this is a nice size; fall front--3 drawer, adjustable shelf bookcase antique side by side. Lion's claw front feet. Plain back feet. Beveled Glass mirror.
I think the three front (large) drawers have original pulls. I am positive the top drawer knobs are NOT original. I can tell by looking at them. But they are as we bought it. We wanted something to use as a bar for our living room in our contemporary first house that we could afford, and this fit the bill.
Since this is a piece of furniture. It is CASH & CARRY. I cannot deliver or ship. Please ask all questions prior to bidding.
As it is an auction venue, the sale must take place within 10 days of the end of the auction, or I will leave negative feedback for the high bidder.
This piece has a pretty design. Note the holes in the book case side for the shelves? The shelves have PEGS that one removes and puts in the holes so the shelves can be raised or lowered as the owner so desires.
This is a long look at the piece. Not the drawer pulls.
I like the fall front. I do not like the inside shelving unit. The person who had the piece before we did glued this piece in crooked. It has disturbed me for over two decades.
You can see the cracked glass clearly in the picture below.
I apologize for all of the dust.
Thanks for looking!
I Prefer Payment by PayPal.
I do my best to describe the items I sell to the best of my ability. I want my ON LINE Auction customers to be happy with their purchases, but also to understand that this is an auction venue, and merchandise is sold through the mail.
