A lovely characterful antique bureau dating to the early 18th century. Featuring a cross banding to draws and fall flap front. The interior is fitted with 4 drawers, a central lockable cupboard and hidden storage area concealed by a slide panel. The fall front is lockable and features a pressed leather writing insert. A piece of furniture 300 years old will show signs of use and age and this piece is no exption.
It is strong of joint and stable. There are signs of historic repairs to the inlay banding, to the hinge positioning and the drawer lock areas. The Brass wares whilst antique are replacement items.
Originally the bureau would have been fitted with ball feet, these have long gone and historically replacement bracket feet were fitted and these complement the bureau nicely. A truly fine and obviously loved piece of family furniture of modest proportions. Measuring just 37 inches high by 37 inches long by 20 inches deep. This is a large and heavy item. A collection only at this time please.
