1904 Quarter-sawn or tiger oak (including the sides) divided bookcase or china cabinet. All solid oak and no veneer. 2 arched doors with shaped original wavy glass. The cabinet has just received a light cosmetic refinish in our restoration shop. No wood repairs were required.Lots of applied beading and hand carvings. Doors are not warped and open and close tightly and correctly. The glass sits tight in the frames and does not rattle. There are no scratches or abrasions on the exterior of the cabinet.
The wavy glass is excellent. The only modification to the cabinet are replacement positive catches that hold the doors shut.
These were added in the 1970's. They work fine, so there was no reason to change them. The cabinet has all of its original hinges, hardware and locks, but NO keys. There are provisions for casters at the bottom of the legs if you choose to add them. There are a total of 6 original shelves, 3 on each side.
The shelves DO NOT have plate grooves. The shelf pins are the originals and quite heavy duty. The shelves are adjustable at 1 1/2 increments and there is plenty of room to add more shelves, and there are several extra shelf pins included. Shelves measure 12" x 23 1/2" x 1/2 thick. Cabinet also has a carved top gallery with very rare clock or statue shelf.
The top has no potted plant stains and there are no musty book smells in the cabinet interior. This was a high quality piece of furniture when it was built, and one of the nicest ones that has come through our shop in our 49 years of business. Measurements: The cabinet as shown in the photos is 70" tall x 49 1/2" wide x 14 3/8 deep. The molding at the top of the doors is 51 1/2 wide. The top gallery and shelf are removable.
The top of the clock shelf is 8" deep x 16 1/2" wide. The cabinet, with the gallery removed is 62 tall.
