The Dickens Large Antique Oak Bookcase is made from solid American Oak, designed to give it classic character and appeal.
The frame is made using traditional mortise and tenon joints finished off with an inset “tongue & groove” back panel, for strength and sturdiness.
Fine oak veneers are used on insert panels, a heavy moulded top and styled plinth create an antique look. This bookcase is stained in a rich oak colour, then finished with a satin lacquer.
The Dickens Large Antique Oak Bookcase has five sturdy shelves. If you count the base, this is six shelves – more than most bookcases. The middle shelf is fixed, giving added strength and sturdiness, the other four shelves are adjustable, this will give you more choice for arranging books, photo frames or even ornaments.
The Dickens Large Antique Oak Bookcase comes in a practical part assembled format for easy access to any room. The sides are fixed to the front frame with hinges, simply open the sides out and fix the top and centre shelf then fix the back panel with screws supplied, holes are pre drilled, so no drilling is needed. This system makes these bookcases as sturdy as any fully built furniture.
