A real designer accent this beautiful coastal book shelving furniture is rich in design, very well built, and wonderfully utilitarian.

An age-old hallowed fraternity tradition. Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, Harvard. Racing eights. An Olympic sport; these long, narrow and fast wooden racers were cut up in sections when retired. Transformed into bookcases they lined the halls and bars of fraternities the world over. Oars were painted with crests and races, names and dates, and wall-hung. This is an exact replica of a late 19th C. forward prow of a man-of-eight, that once cut through the rippling waters of the inland Thames river.

Sorry, this item is too large for International shipment.

Usually ships the next business day.
