A pretty and good quality George II style bureau with beautifully figured walnut veneers and cross banding to the top, fall, and drawer fronts, the fall opening to reveal a stepped fitted interior of pigeonholes and two drawers, above an arrangement of three graduated oak lined drawers with solid brass drop handles, and raised on short tapering circular section legs with pad feet.
Height 40″ (102cm) Width 33″ (84cm) Depth 19″ (48cm)
Condition and Details of Restoration:
This bureau is in original condition, and is structurally completely sound. The polish has been revived by our own craftsmen, by hand in the traditional manner. There are some minor old marks underneath the polish; in our opinion, the photographs are representative.
