An Early 19th Century Mobile Bookshelf March 6, 2015 – Posted in: books in design, product design – Tags: 19th century, furniture design, library furniture, regency period
Check out this cool little piece of book furniture.
Hailing from the Regency era this little book carrier, ca. 1820, offered a nifty way to carry some of your books around.
Here’s the full description: An attractive Regency period two sided Book Carrier incorporating a single drawer with fine cedar linings, the upper section with delicately turned spindles, the ends with swan shaped motifs.
I can just see some literate royal filling it up with a beautiful leather-bound set of his/her favorite author and heading for the garden.
It’s being offered by Windsor House Antiques and can be had for £2300.
