20TH CENTURY ANTIQUE ARTS & CRAFTS TIGER OAK DOUBLE DOOR BOOKCASE / CHINA CABINET LARKIN FURNITURE BUFFALO NY. Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques.
We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients. Bay Colony Antiques is proud to offer for sale this fantastic early 20th century antique Arts & Crafts Tiger Oak double door bookcase / China cabinet. Larkin started as a soap company in Buffalo NY and would include free furniture with large soap orders and eventually became a smaller version of Sears Roebuck with an extensive catalog just like Amazon.Unlike Amazon, Larkin manufactured most of their products in large factories in Buffalo and employed a large amount of people. The bookcase retains its original wavy glass doors and has 4 adjustable shelves that can accommodate a large library. The bookcase does still have its original lock, but this didn't come to us with a key. We have a large stockpile of antique keys and we'll be sure to match one up. The bookcase is in great condition with our only notes being a missing escutcheon, wear to the top, light wear on the bottom baseboard, and a few dry spots in the finish on the right side. This is probably the original surface, and it has developed a desirable crackling or "alligatoring" effect. This can be best seen around the doors and on the vertical stiles.
The bookcase measures 39 1/2" wide x 13 1/2" deep x 54 1/2 tall. The interior has useable dimensions of 36" wide x 10 1/2" deep x 48 1/2 tall. Each shelf has 3 different height adjustments spaced roughly 2 apart. We are a wholly owned family business in our third decade of continuous operation.We have a large inventory of fine antiques ranging from Early American, Federal, Chippendale, Empire, Centennial, Victorian, 20th Century custom mahogany, Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern antique furniture along with decorative arts from across the globe. All the items we offer to the general public are high quality estate pieces. We do not offer goods with significant flaws or defects. We completely avoid items with issues. You can expect the items we sell to have reasonable wear and tear. Due to the large volume of goods we deal in we cannot describe items in minutia.
