Monumental Solid Carved Tall Walnut Victorian Bookcase Bookshelf, circa 1870s
This is part of a 3-piece set and can be purchased as a set or separately. The bookcases were custom made for a bank owned by the Dupont family. They are made up of many pieces and do come completely apart. This particular one has water-gilded details for the brightest possible gold leaf. The others do not have this feature. They do have missing moldings and signs of use and chips here and there but they are worth of restoration. I have a photo showing a man who is 5ft 10 to give you a sense of scale. This one measures: 136 inches tall x 93 wide x 28 deep.
