Indian Antique is world famous, every other part of this world. Antique Barristers Bookcases or ‘Layers Bookcase’ were first seen in the late 19th Century Victorian period and was usually stacking with cabinet glazed doors that open on a hinged mechanism, in the same design as the Globe Wernicke Bookcase or the Minty design. Antique Barristers Bookcases were designed to store books or other office documents and were commonly seen in solicitor’s offices, libraries or Schools in Britain. The beauty of this style of antique bookcase is the flexibility of being able to order them in any height as they simply stacked on top of each other. This meant you could have just one or several heights dependant on how much storage you needed. They are extremely collectable as they can house a large book collection and are quite a unique design. Indian Antique Furniture Singapore has all the best antique furniture available to serve the people having extreme interest in Vintage style antique furniture.

Antique Hall Stands are free standing pieces of antique furniture often seen in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. Antique hall stands will usually have, turned wooden hooks or Copper hooks for coat hanging, a central mirror that sits above a glove box complete with hinged lid, although today it is more likely to be used as a storage place for keys and mobile phones! The hall stand sits on a base consisting of beautifully turned upright supports with storage space for umbrellas and walking sticks. They also have a tin ‘drip tray’ in the base to catch any water from umbrellas; this would protect the floor and also the piece of furniture. They often come with Arts and Crafts influences and can be called a hat stand or umbrella stand. These impressive antiques would grace any period hallway with all the necessary grandeur it deserves. We do often get good examples in stock but because they are so popular, they do sell fast. If you are looking for one of these unusual stands please let us know as we get them in regularly.

Antique Pier Cabinets were first introduced in the Victorian period and were designed to sit between two large bay windows with a pier mirror above. This was to let as much light into the room as possible as candle light was still the main form of lighting during the Victorian period. The Antique pier cabinet was used to display your finest decorative objects and fine China behind their glazed doors. These antique cabinets were often in figured Burr Walnut, Mahogany, Rosewood or Ebonized with gilt ormolu mounts and velvet linings on the shelves. Antique pier cabinets are very fine looking pieces of antique furniture, decorative and ideal for displaying objects or also can make a lovely smaller bookcase. On rare occasions, you can see matching pairs; these would have been specially commissioned for the owner of a grand Victorian home as they are rare to see. These marvellous 19th Century antiques are more collectable if in their original condition and this is why we try to retain their finish by cleaning and waxing to revive the original patina. They are truly striking pieces of furniture and can make a great addition to your home
