Description

The top section with a bold broken arched pediment centred by a brass finial.
The mirrored door, above two candle slides, opens to reveal a fitted interior of drawers and shelving.
The bureau base with a fitted interior, a concealed well beneath a slide revealing secret drawers, over two short and two long drawers.
The whole veneered and feather-banded in well figured walnut.
