Antique Bookcases & Shelves

Many of the bookcases and displays came out of old homes and offices from the colonial era of India, both French, British and Indian. Glass bookcases were used to help protect books from the moisture and humidity during Monsoon season. Most have been restored but are wear consistent with age. The open shelves are old door frames from using recycled wood for the back and shelves.
