Open front bookcases really came into being in Victorian England as a great way of storing lots of books and decorative items. At Canonbury Antiques we carry a range of walnut and mahogany open bookcases. Our most popular bookcase is the Sheraton Regency open front bookcases.
These bookcases come with adjustable shelves working on a slat system. It’s great as you can choose the height of your shelf to suit whatever you are displaying – whether it’s large books or even decorative items.
The Sheraton open front bookcases feature intricate marquetry inlay work in the form of sashes, garlands and other Regency motifs. We normally sell these bookcases in pairs but are more than happy to sell them as single pieces.
These Sheraton bookcases are hand crafted here in England to centuries old traditions and are built to last, hence making them a great investement. YOu can view these bookcases at our Hertfordshire showroom so please contact us if you would like to make an appointment to view them. We also carry breakfront bookcases in both walnut and mahogany if you are looking for a larger piece.
