Item Details

Information:

  • Product Type: Bureaux
  • Original/Reproduction: Original
  • Style: Queen Anne, William & Mary
  • Age: Pre-1800
  • Material: Walnut oak


 A very small 27" wide Queen Anne or possibly William III fall front bureau or writing desk with fitted interior. Dating from around 1700 this bureau was originally veneered in walnut however most of this has been removed leaving only the fitted interior interior with any of its walnut surfaces still present.
Fitted interior with two small drawers with featherbanded walnut veneers and with cross grained moulding to the nosing beneath. Well with original sliding cover. Stepped pigeonholes to eather side.

The drawers are all of oak and have have their original inside surfaces intact. The carcase is largely of pine later finished in oak at the sides.

The whole desk is in sound structural condition with all joints very firm. The backboard has been replaced with new timber.

This is an early and, in this size, very scarce piece but in great need of expert restoration which once done will be very rewarding indeed.
