C1765 Louis XVI Tulipwood Cylinder Bureau Bookcase

$18,000.00


Magical Louis XVI period Cylinder bureau bookcase in Tulipwood. As a Dalbergia timber this would now need three certificates to move between countries, so domestic buyers are preferred. The shelves are replacements (originals lost in transit), but otherwise keys, locks and brasses are original. You will need a substantial room as the bookcase rises just shy of 2.5 metres tall. It is 115 cm wide and 60 cm deep when closed. I can find only two similar examples online, and neither is as magnificent:
