Books first appeared in the world as scrolls. These scrolls were usually inscribed by hand and so their production was quite costly. Religious institutions, libraries and ancient universities prized the books highly. These necessitated the need for specialized containers or boxes which were easily accessible for easy referencing. Initially the shelved containers were much deeper and separated into many compartments for easier access. The shelving was usually hidden away in closets that blended with the home decor or in private study rooms.
If you are looking for an antique white bookcase it is best to seek out furniture restoration specialists. Another option is to buy a modern design and treat it with an antique finish. These finishes can be obtained in any craft store.
A cube or shelf dedicated to favorite ornaments from your past is a great way to share holiday memories with small children without them being lost on a tree. Holiday decorations from different decades would make an interesting display-- a kind of "though the years with Grandma and Grandpa" or "when I was your age", type of display.
