This pair of antique bookcases looks surprisingly contemporary with its asymmetrical shelves and clean-lined design. Likely centerpieces in the studio of a 20th century Chinese scholar, the elegant bookcases would have showcased books, scrolls, precious antiques, calligraphy brushes, and other writing materials. The open shelves’ offset arrangement beautifully enhanced the aesthetic presentation of these treasured objects.
