An Italian renaissance bookcase constructed from antique elements in the style of the late 16th / early17th century,
height 69" width 47", depth 20"
Original early bookcases are rare and have long been in high demand, commanding high prices. This piece was probably constructed in the late 19th or early 20th century, using parts from much earlier periods. It is faithful in design and construction of an original renaissance piece.
For a similar piece also made up of antique elements in part, offered at auction in 2002 with an estimate of 8,000 - 10,000 euros, see http://www.tajan.com/pdf/2002/hauteepoque27112002.pdf and scroll down to page 44, lot #417. (I do not know how much this piece sold for.)
Includes custom white-painted wooden stand for display purposes (not shown). Stand is 4" high, which extend the height to 73" in total.
Condition: Overall good condition. Old worming in various places.
