Northwind Oak Bookcase / Desk Side By Side Cabinet

Northwind Carved Victorian quartered Oak bookcase / desk side by side cabinet. We have had the cabinet beautifully refinished. The feature in our opinion on this cabinet is the hooded top which is very nicely carved with the face of the Northwind in the center and scrolling acanthus foliage around. Under is a beautiful scroll above a sunburst, hair motif & paw foot carved central post which sits on the right side of the top on the bookcase. The hooded gallery is finished on either end with the lovely gadroon carved & elongated C scroll ending on the corners with the carved open moth Lions heads. The bookcase side with the bow glass front door has four shelves adjustable inside. The other side of this cabinet with the original shaped bevel mirror on the back under the hooded gallery with open mouth carved lions head which is supported under by the three branch shaped post joined to the back and ending in a scroll on the open display shelf. The center on the post is finished with a nicely carved open mouth Lions head and acanthus foliage swirling behind. The desk section under with a solid Oak slant front door having a neat Northwind face medallion and the door opens to reveal the interior with cubbies. Under the desk are three drawers the top with a shaped front and all of the original ornate handles are complete
