Magnificent antique French white oak bookcase, with 2-doors, both retaining their original wavy glass. We located this antique French bookcase, china cabinet, or display cabinet in the town of Joigny, which is located in the north-central part of France. Joigny was founded by the Roman’s around 369AD and rests on the banks of the Yonne River. Our French bookcase or bibliotheque is not quite that old, but was probably made in the very late 1800’s and remains in an unrestored state. Our Old Plank workshop went through the antique French cabinet to make sure it was structurally sound and washed the bookcase thoroughly inside and out. The option remains to stain, wax or leave as is, the later being our choice.
