Living in Chilliwack, I'm able to see in person the furniture at Antiques by Design. The furniture is always top quality and good value.

Ball & Claw Foot Mahogany Victorian 2 Door Bookcase
Mahogany Victorian 2 door bookcase on ball & claw foot. The quality of this bookcase is very nice obviously made by a reputable maker and we have had it beautifully refinished. The top front & sides are finished with a rope or gadroon carved edge. The original heavy bevel glass is still very nice and clear in the two doors and beside on the front corners are finished with inset half round fluted columns having acanthus carved top and bottom. Under the doors are two drawers finished with shell & acanthus foliage carved fronts and the original Chippendale brass hardware. Between the doors and drawers is an egg & dart border and under is a gadroon border. This bookcase is beautifully supported on four carved Ball & claw feet
