Marquetry of the highest caliber adorns the façade of this exceptional Edwardian period bookcase. Constructed entirely of rare Cuban mahogany, this case is adorned with impeccably designed inlay, from the majestic scroll pediment and intricately paned windows to the doors of the lower cabinet. This network of delicate inlaid swags and classical elements is crafted of satinwood, boxwood and naturally colored fruit woods that have maintained both their detail and color for over 100 years, perfectly complementing the richness of the mahogany in this impressive display. The upper doors, which open to reveal an interior of solid mahogany, also feature incredible hand-beveled glass panes, making this bookcase a flawless and well-appointed place to showcase one's most prized collections. To find such an exemplary piece of early Edwardian furniture in such wonderful condition is truly remarkable. Circa 1880 64" wide x 20" depth x 101" high The furniture that is recognized as Edwardian first appeared about 20 years before King Edward VII, for which it is named, ruled England. Characterized by a light and refined elegance, this sleek style featured delicate lines and intricate inlay, and often incorporated classical elements such as swags and urns, bright colors and lightweight fabrics. The first pieces crafted in this style, such as this impeccable bookcase, were of the very best quality. However, it wasn't until the reign of the illustrious Edward VII that this style became popular, and hence was forever associated with this glamorous period.
