Fine Quality Antique Storage at Box House

If you are anything like us you will most likely have many things such as books and bits and bobs collected over the years spread around and looking for a secure home.

One solution is to divide books into categories for easy reference. What better place for them than in a bookcase with space for some of your personal mementos?

The same applies to dinner services and glassware which can look good graduated and, ideally, backlit. We have a superb library bookcase in the pipeline which has a secretaire drawer and loads of storage for tableware etc. In mahogany circa 1760, it has thirteen-pane glazing bars. It should be ready for use by the end of June.

Below is a classic English mid-18th century mahogany bureau bookcase which is ready to use, in original state apart from the replaced cartouche in the pediment. Of special interest is the carved blind fret on the bracket feet, the fine open fret in the swan-neck pediment and the well-carved and detailed writing section. 3’6” wide and Chippendale period circa 1760:

Below is a compact secretaire bookcase circa 1790 of rare small size – a mere 2’ 6” wide:
