Large Gilt Decorated Breakfront Bookcase

Large Gilt Decorated Breakfront Bookcase

Part of a specially commissioned suite of Georgian style furniture of the most magnificent quality, this very large breakfront bookcase in selected mahogany was designed by Stephen Hunter to the client's outline specification and handmade in his Norwich workshops. The piece ably demonstrates the supreme cabinet making and French polishing skills possessed by the Company's craftsmen. The oil and water gilt decoration was superbly executed by one of England's most respected master craftsman in these exacting techniques. The interior cupboards of the upper section were lined in fine fabric to the client's specifications.
