This is a fantastic quartersawn oak barrister in amazing condition. It would be a stand out piece in any home or shop. It consists of the base, the 4 drawers section, the 4 door section with divided inserts which slide in and out easily and are fully removable, and the top which is not original to the set but is oak. The doors all have original wavy glass.All 6 drawers work nicely and are very deep though one drawer sticks a bit and could be easily fixed with wax or soap I think. The sides and back are unfinished as it appears it was a built in when originally used. The base depth pis shorter than the top sections by about 1 1/2 to allow for base boards in your room. If you pull one of the sliding sections, which are made from a different wood species walnut? , out there isnt wood underneath making it open to the next section below.
So, if you didnt want to use the inserts, you would need to put something in to create a bottom. The dimensions are just over 48 1/2 wide X a tad over 55 1/3 tall with the top and just over 58 1/3 tall with X just over 25 1/2 deep. As stated above, the top is. It original to the set and is therefore a different color, is newer and doesnt fit properly.
From the front, it doesnt look bad though and, if refinished to match the other sections would do the job until you could find a top section or additional drawer of glass sections to stack on top. We are including it for those who would like it or can senior without.We will happily work with the mover of your choice! We have used uShip in the past with great success. This is a heavy piece but does break down into 4 pieces for movability.
