A Volume of Libraries
‘A Volume Libraries - An Open and Shut Case’ is the title of the Spring Exhibition of classic English antique furniture at W. R. Harvey & Co, the Witney antique dealers, from
16th – 31st March 2019.
The exhibition will highlight the quintessentially “English Look” epitomised by the English Gentleman’s library of the 17th, 18th, and 19thcenturies. A unique collection of pieces from across the reigns of 11 monarchs will illustrate the huge range of exceptional pieces that were designed and made for the libraries of manor houses, London residences and stately homes from circa 1680 to circa 1850.
Many of these examples have been thoroughly researched and will reveal little known secrets that make them so interesting and desirable. The exhibition will be presented as a series of period room settings designed to emphasise the range of designs, colours, forms and uses of fine English furniture. A comprehensive catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
