This is an exceptionally well figured William & Mary Burr Walnut Bureau Cabinet of good colour and patina in remarkable original order. The Oak drawer linings are in lovely clean original condition. The handles we believe must have been replaced shortly after the piece was made as they are fine quality examples of the period, we initially thought the handles were original but on close inspection you can make out a trace of a snipe fastening that has been fitted through the same hole. Adam Bowett talks of the type of handle fitted here with the knuckle joint and nut fixing as being superior to the basic snipe fastening that were much more common. The carrying handles, hinges and interior brass knobs are original, the bun feet are replaced. This is a rare late 17th Century Walnut Cabinet of the finest quality with well fitted shaped interiors, wonderful secret drawers, feather banding and particularly well chosen Burr Walnut matched veneers throughout.
