Very sturdy for its dimensions. They may need an adjustment or new roller mechnisms during restoration, but also work as is.
Cannot seem to see if there are rolling mechanisms or if they slide. The back panel has one corner that needs adjusted. The more original the better. This is priced as you see it.This bookcase, if it were, in perfect original condition would garner prices in the multiple thousands range. There are Dings, few very old chips, gouge, scratches.
This is a very old piece. Very solid, and strong integrity. All the wood that is present is original to this piece.Wonderful to restore or keep as is. This would really restore nicely! The outside of this old cabinet most likely may have been stained at some point in its life.
Also not shown in the photos, this piece has ALL 16 of the original Cast brass shelf pegs. Please look closely at photos. This was biult by the Danner company out of England.They biult cabinets from the 1870s until 1916. This would make an impressive Old Western type Saloon Bar. Restore or leave as is. I say this for the good of all of us and with a smile....
