19th Century Red Mahogany Renaissance Bookcase with Caryatids and Carved Panels

$ 12,250
  • Description
    A grand Continental historicist bookcase with three cases. A molded cornice with swags and masques in the frieze surmount the case section enclosed by original beveled glass. The lower reliefs depict tavern scenes and card games. Highly sculptural troubadors and musicians rest on the vertical pilasters which are themselves supported by a mythological Atlantid and Caryatid, circa 1890.

    Wear consistent with age and use. Minor losses. Minor fading. The piece retains its original finish. One of the lower four Caryatids is missing. A second Caryatid has been removed to maintain the symmetry of the piece but is retained with the bookcase and could be reinstalled if desired.
