Beautiful Mid Century Modern Tapered Walnut Bookshelf

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


A very beautifully designed mid century modern tapered walnut bookshelf. The unit has 5 shelves that taper in depth from top to bottom. The side profile is lovely and has plenty of room for storage. It is in very good vintage condition with minimal surface scratching. I have shown a college of 4 photo's which are a darkened stain on the inside of the left wall of the shelf, a stain on the 4th shelf down, and 2 small chips at the bottom of the recessed base plate. We believe this piece to have been made by Dillingham.

Approx dimensions:
38"W x 60"H x 8-1/2 to 14-1/2" taper deep from top shelf to bottom

NOTE: SHIPPING IS NOT INCLUDED IN LISTING. Please convo PRIOR TO CHECKOUT to arrange pick up. You may use the carrier of your choice, or we are happy to work with you to help find a carrier.
