1930s Vintage Oak Glazed Bookcase Cabinet
Great looking and from the offices of a Yorkshire chartered surveyors and probably a bespoke rather than a production line piece. We love the angle to the upper glazed section and the practical sliding oak doors underneath. As mentioned the piece is perhaps a one off and the build quality is good with nice touches – good shape to the oak handles and a little gentle shaping to the upper part makes it not only good looking, but also its 4 sets of glazed sliding doors and lower cupboard make it useful and practical.
Workshop report – We have lightly waxed the piece and it survives in good condition with sensible wear and the odd mark or two. The doors on the lower half are sliding well as are the glass doors to the upper half. We do have a few little nicks to the glass and a piece missing on the bottom of one of the glass doors, however you do not see it when it is in situ, only if you lift the glass out - not sure why you would, and it does not affect it working. Smells fine, expect sensible day to day wear but no nasty surprises and it sits firm with no wobbles or repairs.
Something a little different with a hint of British industrial about it C1930.
