Beautifully crafted vintage French 3-door bookcase with a large cornice, paneled locking doors with wavy glass, and a substantial plinth base raised on bun feet. Two narrow doors with arched tops flank the larger central door. The central door features a carved coat of arms with two lions, a crown above a shield, and the Latin phrase “Labor Improbus Omnia Vincit” meaning work conquers all or “anything can be achieved if proper work is applied.”
The old paper label of the furniture maker is still affixed to the back of the bookcase. Each section of this handsome bookcase offers three adjustable shelves for displaying your prized collections of books and objects.
Can be disassembled for easier transport.
