A Pair of Art Deco Egyptian Revival Open Bookcases in Birdseye Maple – SOLD


Out of stock



This is a very nice pair of Art Deco Egyptian Revival Open Bookcases that are of recent manufacture and which have been made to exacting standards by craftsmen of exceptional ability. They will be of interest to both collectors of Art Deco furniture and also to Egyptology enthusiasts.

Although we are listing them for sale as a pair, they may also be available individually on request.

These distinctive bookcases are very much in the Art Deco style and also feature a distinct Egyptian influence with their decorative ormolu Sphynx heads, sphynx feet and winged angels to the sides of the piece. This styling reflects the renewed interest in Egyptology that took place following the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen in Egypt in 1922.

The material chosen was birdseye maple which is renowned for its extremely beautiful grain – a feature that has been made considerable use of in these pieces of Art Deco furniture. As you can see from the photograph gallery, the bookcases are finished on all sides, including the rear, and do not necessarily have to placed against a wall.


These Art Deco bookcases are offered for sale in excellent condition with a price of just £1800 the pair or singly at £950 each. Please examine the gallery of photographs to satisfy yourself as to the very fine qualoity and condition of these items.
