W. Lucy & Co. Perfect Adjustable Shelving

Retrouvius has just salvaged many sets of Edwardian era shelving from a well loved university library. Manufactured by W. Lucy & Co. Ltd, Oxford, from the late 1890's, it was named "Perfect Adjustable Shelving". It is extremely versatile with brackets running up and down a groove in the upright with shelves easily locked in any position. It can be configured in numerous ways for home and shop use - as bookshelves, storage, display and for hanging clothes etc.

We have four slightly different designs available: a narrow and wide decorative version, and a narrow and wide industrial version with a more minimal surface detail.
