GEORGE III STYLE ROSEWOOD AND BRASS BREAKFRONT BOOKCASE
England, circa early-to-mid 20th century
Item # 911PNS24Z
A very fine reproduction of the George III taste using rich and exotic rosewood veneers and solids to create a dramatic display. The cabinet is exquisite in quality and material, the rich and dense rosewood polished to a near French-polish. The glazed doors open to reveal a shelved upper cabinet with brass clasps on the left door. The lower blind doors open for a space divided by shelves in three. Applied brass molding heals the joint between both the upper and lower doors. Attention to detail is shown in every aspect of the case, even the interior of the lower doors being finished with chaotic rosewood set within the tenon-mortised door frame on either side.
For the modern home where a touch of the traditional is required, this is an exquisite piece with modern dimensions, the richest of materials and the highest level of craftsmanship.
