Industrial Bookshelf by W Lucy & Co. England

Newly re-stored & released for sale is this magnificent antique industrial bookshelf.  Manufactured by W. Lucy & Co. Ltd, an iron and steel fabricator located in Oxford, England, it dates between the late 1880s to the early 1910s.  With the aim of designing the perfect adjustable shelving system, we think it is a piece of pure engineering genius! With end columns that feature continuous grooves to carry shelf brackets that adjust to any desired height and then lock into place, its extremely simple to alter the 5 shelves to your desired height.  With 4 solid oak shelves (the 5th is pine) and a cast iron frame, this industrial bookshelf makes for the perfect storage feature in either a home or business interior.  A rare find that we are privileged to have found and restored back to its former glory.
