Antique Campaign Upright Book Cabinet
This mahogany book cabinet is a little different to most in that the height is increased rather than the width when in use. The majority of such cabinets were intended to sit on a campaign chest. It can be seen by the shelves that it was always meant to open this way. The shelves are adjustable to a number of different heights and are faced with a rounded moulding. When closed the cabinet has 2 lugs to help locate the sides to each other. An unusual variant on the portable bookcase. Mid to late 19th Century.
We are very happy to email or fax full condition reports upon request.
