That was great.
The couple that built my home in 69 were big fans. They put 4 in. I kept two in the great room, one being a 120A.
I've always thought they look like beautiful dust magnets. How is it keeping them clean?

Chinese lacquer from the Qing Dynasty?
Hohoho - A nice laugh at ole Ge’s expense. Fair perhaps — but life isn’t fair, so this an irrelevant criterion.

If you look at the very top shelf, you’ll see the edges are razor thin. It doesn’t look like it’s a part of the original shelf. So my Q to @Bromley is that plywood or particle board or what? Also what’s the point of that structural beam in the center — is it to take the additional load? Nobody here knows the slightest thing about furniture except for the B man. If I’m totally off base, however, I’m man enough to take my comeuppance.

But not from you. Not like this.

I dunno, looks like a regular painted wall to me. I think what you're seeing as thin edges on the shelves is probably just a finely-shaped edge profile on the wood. If they did use plywood for the shelves, they almost definitely would have wrapped the edges with solid wood anyway.

I don't know how they were building houses in Ecuador in the 1950s, but that bit of wall that sticks out is probably a structural or otherwise utilitarian part of the building. Just a guess. When you inset anything into a wall you've got to work around the building part of the building. It's a lovely space. Couldn't find any other pictures of the house online. I want to see the ceiling.

Haven’t found much either. I think the villa is now known as the Villa Schiller Kohn
