Description

The Regency Era took place in the United Kingdom after the reign of King George III. During this time, the British population was exposed to other styles from different cultures due to the many expeditions. From the French, etageres came are standing open shelves for the display of objects. This elegant etagere is made entirely from mahogany, a wood that was readily available in Europe and remained the main wood of choice for furniture making during the time. It is noted for its durability, high quality, and rich reddish-brown color. There are six open shelves, perfect for displaying collectibles, plants, books, or any other dainty trinkets. The shelves are supported by four slender hand-carved columns. Most English Regency style furniture was plain with elegant lines and avoided curves and shapes for surfaces, like this etagere. The handles at the bottom are cast in the manner of blooming flora and acanthus leaves, with the knob being a carved rosette. This bottom drawer blends seamlessly into the design. Meanwhile, the etagere sits upon four brass casters that make it easy to move around. Unlike bookcases, etageres are meant for displaying light objects. This stunning piece would look perfect in a bedroom, living area, or even dining room.

H= 73 in. W= 17 in. D= 16.5 in. lbs. Each shelf is 12 in. by 12 in.

Condition

The piece is sturdy but we recommend it is kept along a cornered wall. Unlike bookcases, etageres are meant for displaying light objects. Almost 200 years old, there are inconspicuous chips, scratches, and nicks throughout. We will be happy to provide additional images upon request.

The bottom and top shelves have been professionally repaired and these are not readily seen. The casters glide well, however, the etagere is meant to be stationary and not moved with items on it.
