Item Number: SA682256
Date of manufacture: 18th Century
Current Status: For sale
Seller: S and S Timms Antiques Ltd


A delightful George I period walnut bureau bookcase
Of diminutive proportions having recently re-silvered
Original bevelled mirror glass to single cabinet door
Enclosing fitted interior with adjustable shelves over
Three long drawers raised on original bracket feet
( A beautiful example of it's type this bureau bookcase
retains a lovely warm colour and has been constructed 
from extremely well chosen, highly figured walnut 
veneers. The overall size and proportion is rarely found 
and it is small enough to fit just about any space or 
environment one could begin to imagine. The mirror 
in the door is almost certainly the original glass plate,
and has been recently re-silvered, giving the best of
both worlds in terms of originality, but also function.
The brass ring handles are not the originals but are
of the style which it would have been fitted with originally
and therefore sit most comfortably on the piece. Its rare
to find the combination of good condition, diminutive
size and relative originality on something of this age
of course and these are hugely desirable qualities.)
