I have for sale a large complete art deco office or home library set made by the Belgian company De Coene, made in the 1930s.
The set comprises the cupboard and bookshelf pictured in the main picture – the second picture showing the leaded glass display section which is attached in a corner format. The corner cupboard could be removed to facilitate a flat alternative.
Also included in the set is a matching tall display cabinet with drawers and cupboard beneath and a large glass topped desk.
Parts of the set incorporates marble plinths and decorative panels. The handles are large bronze art deco handles.
A very comprehensive set, possibly custom made by De Coene for a large house. We will consider splitting the set.
Call us for individual prices.
Some pictures are old shots taken in Belgium but the two large cabinets have now been renovated. The other two pieces – the desk and the corner cabinet are awaiting renovation.
Lots more pictures and details available on request.
Final renovated price on the set is £6395
