It is composed of 4 uprights, 1 bar cabinet with two glass shelves and magnetic lock, 4 drawers, 19 shelves. See "info" for additional dimensions.
The position of the shelves can be adjusted. Brass feet and tops are adjustable. In case you would like to install the bookcase in a room with a higher ceiling, we can provide custom made brass wall brackets.

Condition report: very good vintage condition. Patina on wood and brass, minor wear such as light scratches, signs of use, darkenings due to sun exposure or objects. Two more visible marks on one upright. On two drawers some small veneer pieces were missing and have been professionally restored.
