Gorgeous Antique Vintage Rosewood Library Card Catalogue Cabinet with 16 drawers for sale.
It is a unique wine rack and also perfect to organize craft supplies.
The wood has been sealed and all the original copper handles are still on, only one small copper screw that was lost had been replaced.
The top has still the original stains of its years of usage in the library is part of the furniture’s own history but you can easily stencil over the top if it bothers you.
This library cabinet has been handmade by a carpenter of great skill and has been used since 1970 in the old library of Johannesburg.
The wonderful warm rose-colouring and lovely wood grain is beautiful.
This is one-of-a -kind piece of furniture straight from the history of Johannesburg. The drawers are done with dove-tail joints and not with screws.
At the back there is two carved panels which make it possible to use as a freestanding piece.
According to various antique dealers the value is apparently about R 40,000 but I understand that the market price would not reach the valued price.
This piece is something that would give you many years of pleasure to use daily.
