Superb English Regency Mahogany Inlaid Breakfront Bookcase

No. R13392

Superb English Regency mahogany inlaid breakfront bookcase.  

The molded arch pediment is veneered with bold bookmatched mahogany and has five ebony star inlays (large one in the center and four above the pilasters).  

The pilasters are ebony line inlaid (to form the columns) with arrow headers on the tops. 

The four glazed doors have marvelous ovoid mullions (that visually interlock) enclosing the original adjustable shelves   

The base has graduated two short drawers over three long drawers flanked by two bookmatched veneered cupboard doors (one shelf in the left, three drawers with original fire gilt brass in the right), all resting on a molded plinth.  

The whole breakfront is constructed of amazing rich blond “flame” grained mahogany which has an old finish and has a great original warm patina! 

All line inlay and cock beading on the drawers is in solid ebony. 

(constructed in 5 sections to ease moving)
