The Bookcase, now with silk lining and glass shelves, raised on plinth base.


This fine display cabinet was originally retailed by a dealer named Arthur Edwards, who was established in the mid 1920's in Wigmore Street at the Stratford Galleries.  It must have been a large etsablishment as the advertuisment mentions twenty rooms of fine 18th century English furniture and works of art.
