This bureau consists of a solid mahogany top leading down to a solid mahogany fall, the timber choice on this piece is of excellent quality.
The fall having an oval brass escutcheon plate to the top with a book rest below, the fall opening to reveal a surface covered with a deep red felt which is in very good condition.
The interior consists of six pigeon holes, three convex shaped drawers of fine quality mahogany with oak linings and also a secret drawer.
