Information:

  • Product Type: Bureaux


Offered in very good overall original  condition, this handsome Georgian bureau demonstrates fine craftsmanship. 

Made from English Oak, the bureau has a drop down writing leaf which is inset with green leather and sits on pull out rests. Lovely brass key escutcheon. The key fits the key hole, however it does not turn easily. It is used more as a pull.

Lovely sweep of drawers along the back of the bureau with brass pulls and a cubby hole with pretty carved fretwork door. (No Key).

A formation of 2 over 3 drawers forms the main body of the chest underneath. All drawers sit neatly into the frame and run smoothly. Original brass drawer pulls and pretty brass acorn escutcheons on drawers providing a nod to the use of English Oak.

Some Small nicks and dents as you would expect for a piece of this age. However nothing significant .... bureau has a very 'clean' overall surface condition. A fine hairline crack on the exterior of the writing leaf at the bottom. See image.

The back boards are original and show signs of wear through historic damp. See image. Some historical worm holes which we have treated as a precaution

Dimensions: Height 108cm. Depth 47cm. Width: 92cm.

Please refer to all images as these form a key part of the description.
