I have photos of the home and original setting it was in, just ask for pics (had to limit my photos to 12). This is a MASSIVE 11’1″ long bookcase by 55 1/2″ tall. The only way I could move it was quite ingenious if I do say so myself. Backed trailer up to their garage and I had cut rollers and 11′ long boards to roll it into trailer and then into my house. Of all that gorgeous glass, only one tiny 1 crack that is quite hard to find/see. I cleaned and waxed the brass door glides and drawer runners. Very little wear on any of it. There is only the tiniest negligible wear on the runners/guides (for those that know or care what I’m talking about). General age wear to original finish, but very presentable even in original state. One side is raw-unfinished because it was up against a wall where it rested near the fireplace. So the perpendicular crown molding that went from this piece to the fireplace left an unfinished shadow on this molding (3rd photo). Great solid sturdy piece. All original shelves intact along with those trapazoid shaped cleats for the sawtooth adjusting brackets. I would guess this was 1890, but I feel like the home owner mentioned the home was 1905. Please ask for the other pics if interested. Preferably, you’d have a ramped trailer that can be backed up to my door and we roll it on slowly moving the pvc rollers as they get spit out. I really want to own this for my own home and do, but frankly, a 1969 Rambler with low ceilings really isn’t the finest resting spot for this impressive beauty. The item “Antique Victorian 11 FOOT!
