Description

This library cabinet or bibliothèque has three etched and beveled glass doors and three drawers, all framed by columns spanning from top to bottom. Its overall design is a simple yet elegant rectilinear treatment using such typical motifs as the “sandpile” raised panels above and below the columns as well as the central decoration of the lower part of each door. The cabinet sits on bun feet below a classic moulding. Made of solid French walnut, the cabinet boasts a pleasing patina on the lush wood reflecting the heritage of its 19th century origins in southeastern France. For ease of mobility, the cabinet breaks down into multiple pieces.
