Details

French Finish

This Authentic Models Bosuns' Gig Bookcase is completed with a honey French finish with black detail, where at least five coats of varnish have been applied, with sanding in between. The idea is to create a rich coat that, together with applications of subtle patinas and mixed waxes, results in an aged and lived-in look. This bookcase is ideal for a traditional, gentleman's office or living room, where vintage books and nautical objects can be displayed with pride.

Hallowed Traditions

It has long been a hallowed tradition with Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Yale to transform wooden longboats into beautiful bookcases when their racing days are over. The sections are then cut up when the boat is retired and used to adorn the halls and bars of University clubs and fraternities around the world.

The Bosun's Gig

Authentic Models have reproduced a gig, complete with a handbuilt lapstake hull. Referred to as rowboats or longboats by land-bound folk, a gig was easy to lower overboard, needed minimum crew, and was quick to dispatch. Dispatched for victuals for the captain’s table or canvas for a sail blown away in a storm, gigs were invaluable when in port or moored outside.

A stylish addition to a hall, study or bedroom, add atmosphere to any library with this nautical-themed bookcase. Pair with the Man of Eight Bookcase and some of Authentic Models' wonderful nautical objects to really continue the maritime theme.
