A Lovely Boulle Bookcase
This is one of my favorite pieces of Boulle furniture! The cabinet doors have glass inserted and what I like are the different shapes of the glass doors. These are a gothic style, since they are pointed at the top. I have seen them rounded on top or straight across to give a rectangular shape to the glass. This is a bookcase with storage in the long narrow drawer and the cabinet below. The gold transfer work is wonderful around the glass doors and on the pediment above. The interior of the bookcase on top has blue paper which is in very good condition. This piece could be found in a bedroom, parlor, hallway or library. The white banding helps to define each section of the cabinet and the edges are painted black.
Measurements: 7-1/4"h. x 4"w.
