MISSION OAK BOOKCASE CABINET
Unmarked, circa early 20th century
Item # C103601
This well constructed cabinet is typical of the period, a tidy and austere form that highlights the beautiful quarter-sawn oak. The pair of hinged doors swing outward to give access to three shelves on either side. One glass pane is replaced while the other appears to be original. The cabinet rests over legs that continue in one single piece from the tip of the cabinet through the foot, each rolling over original castors.
For anyone with an Arts & Crafts era residence or a classical office, this is a must-have practical and most attractive piece.
Measurements: 51 1/2" H x 42 1/4" W x 12 3/8" D
Finish a bit dried out in a few areas with discoloration to surface from age; one pane of glass original, the other replaced; original castors and key; minor wear and scuff along bottom edge/feet;
