While there are some newer versions of this style of bookcase, being built in less expensive and less durable materials a true barrister bookcase is going to be made of quality hardwood. They are going to also be made of high quality glass inserts in the doors and have fine brass features such as handles, knobs and hinges. On the high quality pieces you will find that the joints are put together with dove tail and assorted other traditional methods of fastening rather than more modern methods of screws and nails.
Over the years, barrister bookcases have kept up with the changing fashions simply by adapting their doors to suit the times. There is a barrister bookcase to fit in with any style of home or any kind of decor. If you have a room which is traditional, there are barrister bookcases in deep mahogany or oak with leaded glass doors.
