SOLD! Glass and Wood 4 Stack Barrister Bookcase

This is a great 4-shelf oak barrister bookcase that I found at an auction in New Hampshire recently. Like the one we sold a while back, it’s a combination of wood and manufactured wood, but is very nice – and at far less than what you’d pay for a century old, solid wood piece. (I recently passed up three of those at another New Hampshire auction. Not only were they expensive, but they weren’t in nearly as good condition as this one is.)

It’s all one large piece. The glass fronts for each shelf roll back readily the way they’re supposed to.

The plus to this barrister bookcase compared with the last one we had is that there are actually 8 shelves, rather than just the four it appears to have. Inside each section, is a glass shelf for smaller items. I unfortunately can’t show those shelves right now because when I picked up the bookcase, I took those shelves out for safe keeping – and left them behind! The auction house where I purchased this from is a 2.5 hour drive away (5 hours round trip!) so I won’t be able to pick them up until the next time I go to Bristol, which will probably be in March sometime.

I tried researching these to see what a comparable price would be. Every one I found was far more expensive than this.

Condition: It’s in excellent condition as the photos show.

Dimensions: 61″ tall x 28″ wide x 12″ deep.

FIRM Price: $125.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $6.33.for a total of $121.33.

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.  

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup. I cannot deliver this as I don’t have the physical strength to get it into my Jeep (I got it out and into my office on my own, but that was a bit of a challenge). A good strong individual can manage (someone got it in the Jeep for me by himself), but I can’t. Shipping is not recommended for this reason, and as it would be prohibitive in price.
