A very good looking and rare piece, pollard oak is highly collectable and was used by the finest furniture manufacturers, this piece is stamped to the top of one of the doors A Blain & Son Liverpool
This is the stamp for Arthur Blain who established the cabinet making business in the William IV period of 1835, at 35 Paradise Street, Liverpool. The earliest examples are stamped with just A Blain Liverpool and the later Victorian pieces carry the A Blain & Sons stamp.
Arthur Blain died in 1868 when the business was continued by Arthurís son, William Hughes Blain who died in 1909. Their works were recorded in ĎThe Dictionary of English Furniture Makersí, 1660-1840, Beard & Giblert, Maney 1986
When you see pieces of furniture by A Blain of Liverpool, you can be sure of quality craftsmanship, created by their skilled cabinet makers. They mainly built their pieces form hardwoods such as Mahogany and Walnut, beautifully hand finished with French polish
The bookcase has fully adjustable top shelves so it can accommodate almost any size book, it can also be used as a pot cupboard but of course it is rather grand for such a use, its better suited to a fine English style Library
In terms of the condition, we have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, there will be plenty of patina marks from genuine age and honest use and some small losses to the ornate carving, I can have the piece fully restored for the cost price should the new owner wish, to my eyes and hands its in very fine order
