Beautiful tall bookcase by Willem Lutjens for De Boer Gouda, manufactured in The Netherlands in 1953.

It is completely made of high quality birch plywood, a rare and beautiful version of this bookcase that is one of the most iconic pieces in Dutch design. This is the tallest version, making it an especially rare find. Because of it's open structure it would also suit perfectly as a room divider. It is easy to take apart and rebuild.

During the 1950s and 1960s bookcases inspired by this design became very popular and there were many produced, but only the Lutjens bookcase has the iconic bent ends on the shelves, giving it it's unique appearance. This original bookcase became a very rare piece and is a great addition to any interior.

In good condition with minor wear, consistent with age and use.
