Whatnot – Bookcase

At Canonbury Antiques we carry a range of whatnots. What? A whatnot is a stand or bookshelf with shelves used for housing and storing small objects, books and decorative items. Kind of like a bookcase.

( Whatnots – Antique Bookcases )

The eytomology of the word whatnot is interesting. From the dictionary: used to refer to an item or items that are not identified but are felt to have something in common with items already named. Hence, in Victorian times, when the whatnot as a piece of furniture first came into existence it got it’s name from the pieces it used to store – all the whatnots. The flotsam and jetsam of living rooms – books, vases, trinkets, busts, sculptures etc.

 

(Victorian Walnut Whatnot Bookcase Barley Twist 1860 )

We have various styles of whatnots including Victorian and Edwardian and carry them in various woods including mahogany and walnut. They are a great interiors piece and a very practical piece of furniture. Come and view our range of whatnots in the Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire showroom which is just 25 minutes north of London in the leafy Herts countryside.

Alongside our range of whatnots we also carry a range of bookcases – including breakfront bookcasesopen front bookcasesRegencyand Victorian bookcases. In addition, we specialise in art deco furniture, classic dining furniture, Continental antiques, bronzes, architectural antiques, Chinese porcelain and anything and everything else related to the world of interiors.
