Leather faux books with storage space, United Kingdom, different ages
They are so much fun, these fake books. If you put them on your bookshelves, they look just like books. But if you take them out, you'll see that they are fake and are actually some kind of boxes. Where you can keep secret things, a stash of love letters from you secret lover for example.
We have two, The one and The other.
The One, is not that old. So from the seventies/ eighties. And has this black lining inside of a very dubious fabric, but still very very nice. The One is a bit thicker than the Other so you can store more in it. Nice leather brown cover with gold print the title of the book: Sister Carrie
The Other is older and very special. On the outside it has a chess board, in the inside you'll find a trip-trac board. As said, it is a lot older the The One, pre war, about 20 years pre war. It is well used and it shows, but it is very lovely. And has this beautifull leather cover with gold lettering, The History of England, Volume I and Volume II.
The One : h 29 cm, w 8 cm ,d 21 cm
