British Colonial Teakwood Barrister Bookcase

Early 20th century

A small British colonial barrister style step-back bookcase in teakwood. 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 a solid plinth.

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.
