Description

A good quality early 18th century walnut bureau of excellent colour and patination with fine figured veneers, cross banding and stringing.
The bureau has a lovely interior with a false floored secret compartment behind the door and two further secrets which are accessed by removing the drawers adjacent to reeded pilasters which flank the door; a concealed spring (one each side) can then be pressed which causes the bottom of the pilaster to slide forward and reveal a secret drawer (again one on each side). Such is the quality of this piece than even the secret drawers, not usually seen, are finely veneered.
(see images 4, 5 and 6).
The engraved brasses are original as are all the oak drawer linings.
Condition is good, although inevitably, after 300 years of use, there have been a few small areas of veneer repair and some long scratches to the left of the fall.
DIMENSIONS: 39.25 inches wide, 40.25 inches tall, 19.5 inches deep.
PROVENANCE: Private Collection, West Country, England.
Internal Ref: 8721
