Original British made solid mahogany Georgian bureau c1800. Very nice quality & extremely heavy piece. Stunning colour and grain to the wood which has obviously been very well looked after / restored and it has a beautiful sheen to the finish. Key included for top but lock isnt working so it purely to use as a handle to open the drop section.Small internal key still works. I believe the handles are original looking at how they are attached but they could of been changed at a later date, either way they are wonderful and highly decorative. Totally solid throughout and all drawer runners have been cleaned and waxed and run freely.
The original leather is very soft but worn in places but easy to change if desired. This is one of the nicer examples available for sale due to beautiful colour, wonderful handles and overall condition. Please note my courier John will require assistance unloading due to weight. CONDITION overall for its age is good, there are of course the usual age related scratches and marks.
Couple of hairline splits to drop down front. Historic repairs to drawer front. Couple of small chips to bracket feet on side. 112 high x 91.5 wide x 52 deep x 78 knee height room. The older pieces of furniture are better made, normally by craftsmen and not machines, have more character & if looked after will last many years.I also love much older pieces, if they are unusual, well made & a great design I will offer them for sale. I like to keep pieces as original as possible & will clean & re oil / wax. I convert some to'Hairpin leg' pieces if they have no legs / ugly legs or missing legs. I do NOT allow customers to arrange their own couier as I cannot accept responsibility for the item in transit.
