An antique 19th Century French sideboard/bookcase, c1850. This is a huge item, over 9 feet tall, but comes apart into two sections (the top lifts off the base).

It is beautifully carved in hardwood (we are not sure about the particular type of wood) with panels depicting dolphins/mythical sea creatures, foliage, etc., a carved gallery and pillars, and a stunning central large leaded/stained glass panel to one of the doors with a central dragon motif.

We have owned the piece for 15 years and it came from a large country house/chateaux in Northern France.

Overall the condition is good, with the main body, all the carved panels and the leaded glass panel in good condition. The bun feet have some damage/losses, probably due to historic woodworm (now dormant, but treated anyway). All this is very much as you would expect from something that is over 150 years old.

The sideboard/bookcase has a real presence and would look great in a large house or hotel. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact us with any questions or if you would like to view the item.

Size: 279 cm tall x 185 cm long x 59 cm deep.
