About this item

Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for sale this lovely pair of early circa 1920 Minty oxford stacking legal bookcases in solid oak made in the Art Deco style

Please note the delivery fee listed is just a guide, it covers within the M25 only, for an accurate quote please send me your postcode

A very good looking and well-made pair, there were a number of companies making this type of bookcase in the late Victorian era up to present day, the finest are by far and away made by Minty. The quality of the craftsmanship is simply out of this world, each door can be opened and rested at any point and it doesn’t move, they are perfectly balanced, the doors have ball bearing clamps which neatly depress to hold the door in place

As mentioned these are modular stacking bookcases so you can buy other sections that are the same and make them larger or if you have a small space to fill remove a section to make it smaller

Condition wise for the era is very good, the glass is all original as are the handles, we have cleaned waxed and polished the timber and cleaned the glass, there are colour variations between the two due to sun fading

These are an Art Deco style set, the handles are rectangle and the tops have Manhattan-style timber carving

Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask

Any questions please feel free to ask before you bid

Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition

Please also ask any questions before you bid and not after, all of our items are sold as seen and as listed

Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand-dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade
