British Colonial Teakwood Barrister Bookcase

Early 20th century

An unusual size antique teakwood barrister bookcase that consists of four parts, including a removable top. It features two self-contained 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 base with two equal size drawers with brass pulls stands on a solid plinth resting on bracket feet.

The barrister bookcase 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 color and an attractive, straight grain.
