Description

This impressive vintage walnut two-piece 18th century-style bookcase will instantly turn any room into a library.  This grand-scale bookcase will showcase most any collection – from books to china.  The upper section has a heavy cornice over three open areas with fixed shelves flanked by architectural pilasters.  Two functional drawers are also found in the upper piece.  Gold fabric and braided trim give the shelving area a finished look.  The bottom piece has three compartments each with one fixed shelf behind locking cabinet doors.  The piece has a rich antiqued patina.

Our favorite feature of this bookcase is that it has two secret compartments behind the two center pilasters of the top piece.  Simply move a hidden latch under a shelf to unlock the compartment and pull the door open.  There is ample space to stash all of your valuables!
