British aluminium shelves
British aluminium open bookcase with a great art-deco architectural style. Furniture such as this was generally produced immediately post-war, using aluminium that had previously been earmarked for plane production, so although 1930s in style, this was probably produced in the late 1940s. It would have originally been painted, but has been stripped to allow the aluminium construction to reveal itself. A great compact size, ideal for paperbacks, and being aluminium, wonderfully light! Nice condition, with just the very lightest of indents to the top right hand cover (see pic).
