British Colonial Teakwood Barrister Bookcase

Early 20th century

A small antique teakwood barrister style step-back bookcase. It features four bookshelves with a glazed door to allow the spines of the books to be read. The books can be accessed by an “up and over” door mechanism. The bookcase stands on four square, short legs.

The cupboard is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The Burma teak wood that this piece has been made of has a warm colour and an attractive, straight grain.
