Early Midcentury British Rosewood Glass Bookcase & Cabinet
An unusual piece, this British-made rosewood cabinet, made by B&S Goodman Roseberry and dating from the 1940’s, is comprised of two halves – one for display and one for storage. With that characteristic, richly toned rosewood patina, it’s a very handsome indeed. Whilst long, it’s design is lean with a shallow depth so it won’t intrude into room or demand much space.
This cabinet works well as an alternative to a sideboard where depth is a concern. Standard sideboards are a touch taller and significantly deeper. The shallow depth of this piece and its slightly lower height make it a practical option without compromising on the all-important storage space within.
The shelf heights are adjustable on both sides and the shelves are the same size. Currently there are two in a glass-fronted side and one in the cupboard but you can change this configuration if you pleased.
Use as a drink cabinet with glasses on the left, bottles on the right. Use for books or displaying treasures and so much more. This would be as at home in a lounge as it would a dining room, kitchen area or open plan family space.
