Man of Eight Wooden Bookcase by Authentic Models




Product Description

This latest bookcase from Hicks & Hicks is hand built on a hardwood frame from planks with are distressed and then french finished in varnish. Four shelves of graduating size set in the centre of the bookcase.

An age-old hallowed tradition. Fraternities, Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, Harvard, Racing Eights. An Olympic sport, upper class, academic admired by the privileged, accessible to the very smart and the highly athletic.

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 latest bookcase is an exact late 19th Century replica prow of a man-of-eight that once cut through the rippling waters of the inland Thames.

Impressive as a Bookcase in any home or office.
