This is a stunning writing bureau dated between 1894 and 1910 made in England from Wolfe of Birkenhead (the plaque is still on the back). It is in superb condition, with pigeons holes beautifully cut and refined, two small and three main drawers, cabriole inlayed legs, amazing shape. It has been painted with a delicate powder pink, then mildly distressed and waxed two times with a mix of clear and dark wax, to give it a gorgeous antique, very french, aged look. 

I simply restored the wooden pigeon holes, keeping the original colour and finishing, and I stained the main drawers' interior to match with the other wooden parts.

All the small knobs are original. The main drawers handles have been replaced with new beautiful antique knocker style handles, as one of the original was missing. 

Unfortunately the key is missing too, and if I had to find an issue with this piece of furniture I'd say that the drop down desk is kind of heavy and can be tricky to lift and open.
