H 98in x W 93in x D 24in
A fine mahogany inlaid library bookcase with breakfront and concealed desk. The crown molding is decorated with classic dentil molding over a frieze with intricate inlaid rosettes. The upper case has gothic glazed doors with finely inlaid corner spandrels of leaf and vine design. The lower case with multiple drawers and fitted satinwood desk interior rests on a plinth base. Very possibly by Gillows of London and Lancaster, this piece relates to documented examples featured in "Gillows" by S. Stuart, pig 362-367. English, circa 1770. Brasses are sympathetic replacements.
