Carved Cherry Library Shelves

Again a dream come true Client!

Only the mantel in this room is original.  The bookshelves crown and over mantel are all new.  Details taken from furniture in the room include: The burled edged on the shelves, burled panels, carved fleur-de-lis on the doors and curved burled crown.  The lower plinths and some running carvings were matches of details on the existing mantel.  The cabinet backs are paneled and the shelf supports are a saw tooth and slat configuration, like a turn of the century cabinet should be.
