Large Old Indian Bookcase

Please refer to our Click & Collect page for more information on how to order this item.

A real statement piece, this huge bookcase would make a stunning feature in any room - its capacious shelves will take the largest books. Made from reclaimed hardwood timbers and featuring an old carved door architrave which has been utilised to great effect. The carved pieces run along the top and both sides of the bookcase and depict a frieze of geometric diamond shapes, contrasting with swirling lotus flowers and foliage motifs on the inside edge. Four substantial, (fixed) shelves provide generous storage space. The bookcase is finished with a fluted architrave top and sits on a simple plinth base. Once painted, the carved details retain scant traces of cream paint. All surfaces are scuffed and marked, in keeping with recycled timbers.

Dimensions: Height: 182 cms Length: 104 cms Depth: 38 cms

We are delighted to introduce our 'Old India' range of furniture; heritage, handmade items that you will not find anywhere else. Many of the items shown are historic pieces of furniture; others have been recently manufactured using old timber components from various sources; ie: floorboards, carved architraves and window shutters. Regardless of their make-up, each piece of furniture is made from genuinely old materials. This is surely the best form of re-cycling; giving discarded items a new lease of life and is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a genuine piece of 'Old India'. Each item is unique - no two pieces are ever the same - the item pictured on our website is the exact item you will receive. Expect to find knocks, dents and 'imperfections'. We believe this adds character to the pieces and we do not regard such 'imperfections' as 'faulty' - merely the sort of wear and tear that is to be expected with age. The items are fully and fairly described; we give special mention if pieces are especially worn, damaged - or where decorative details are missing. Each item of 'Old India' furniture is personally selected by us and our supplier is certified and accredited under the Indian government' s export regulations. Further information: 'Old India' furniture is manufactured from a variety of woods. We endeavour to identify the type(s) of wood contained within each item, but this is not always possible. Do not place your furniture in bright sunlight or near to a heat source, ie: close to a radiator. In highly centrally-heated rooms, some slight cracking and settling of the wood may occur - this will not affect the integral strength of the piece. Use protective mats/coasters to guard against damage from heat and damp - mop up any spillages immediately using a dry cloth. Dust using a soft cloth and polish occasionally using a traditional paste or wax polish. We recommend and sell John Mylands wax. We do not recommend the use of aerosol-type sprays.
