These exceptional bookcases are a tremendous find as it is difficult to find a matching pair. The lovely Gustavian gray paint is perfectly distressed to fit with the age and character of the pair. One notices the symmetry and balance of the Swedish styling in the glass panels and one long drawer at the base. In photo #6, you will see the adjustable shelving system making them ideal for display. They have been given a wax finish, are sturdy and ready to use.
