This antique quartersawn or tiger oak Arts and Crafts Era Bookcase has four adjustable shelves and two glass doors. Sometimes referred to as Mission or Prairie or Craftsman Style Bookcase, this style of building furniture was developed as a
reaction against the Victorian Era of highly decorated design. It was a call back to the sleek simple honest forms that had been the hallmark of skilled artisans and craftsmen.
Although designed as a case to hold the family's most prized books in covered display, it is perfect to show off fine glass and china in a dining area or prized collectibles in the living or family room. Also would suit awards and family sports trophies.
A very special piece for your very special things. The thin profile and sleek lines are suited for hall or entry and look right at home in desert architecture.
The Bookcase is 56 1/8 inches high, 33 1/2 inches wide and 11 7/8 inches deep. There is a tray top with sides and back. In the bottom of the case is a secret compartment for stowing valuables. All the hardware is original. Only missing parts are some of the metal stubs that serve as dowels to support the adjustable shelves.
