Antique Mahogany Georgian Bureau
||9 days 1 hours 24 min
Downsized over a year ago and finally getting around to listing and selling lots of good quality antique and contemporary furniture, household items, clothes, etc for which I now simply have no room. Please see my other listings and watch out for more as I slowly clear everything from my house and garage.
This is a lovely, late Georgian (or possibly early Victorian) mahogany bureau, one of three I inherited over thirty years ago. I'm no antique dealer but it has bracket feet, has had the handles replaced at some point, appears to have the original lock (with key) and has lots of inlaid internal drawers, all of which are in good condition, commensurate with age. It has a central door flanked by two 'secret' pillar drawers. The green baize is probably not original and is good condition. The table leaf is reasonably straight and sits on the leaf supports as it should. The drawers are dovetailed and everything works as it should.
This is a proper, solid and quite heavy piece of antique furniture, not a cheap piece of country furniture masquerading as same. Overall in very good condition per the photographs as you'd expect from a quality piece of antique furniture with a lovely patina. This has been in storage for nearly two years, I haven't waxed it or polished the brass handles to make it look 'antique shop' pretty but if you do, it will as it used to in my older and rather larger period property.
Another quality piece of furniture which I shall be sorry to see go but needs must.
Based in Sherborne, Dorset, DT9, I have a Land Rover and a small trailer so it may be possible for me to deliver reasonably locally if you cover my fuel. Better yet, you are most welcome to view at any convenient time, collect and pay cash which is preferable. I live on the outskirts of Sherborne very close to the A30, am very easy to find with parking right outside.
