Unique Australian colonial auction furniture from Red River Gum

Red River Gum has been used to make what could possibly be a unique example of Australian colonial furniture.

The timber has been used in the construction of an early 19th century breakfront bookcase in the English Regency Gothic style fashionable in the 1830s and 1840s.
