Item Ref



An unusually small early 18th century walnut bureau, with fine veneers, excellent patination and beautifully faded.
The sides are pine, of a good colour and, unusually and pleasingly, have not been later veneered.
Drawer linings are oak with fine dovetails; escutcheons original but the handles are later replacements of the right type.
Obviously there are one or two old damages after 300 years, but nothing significant..a small piece of veneer missing from the right hand back corner of the top; not easily seen.
The strength of this piece lies in its small size, colour and patination; it really is a joy.
There are keys for the fall and the little door within the bureau.
SIZE: 35.75 inches wide, 39 inches tall, 19 inches deep.
PROVENANCE:Old Nottinghamshire Private Collection.
Internal Ref: 8943


Height = 96.5 cm (38")
Width = 91 cm (36")
Depth = 49 cm (19")
