A superb and important Charles II Period Burr Walnut Escritoire, the moulded cornice above a hinged concave moulded frieze with hidden loper for support and opening to reveal an arrangement of removable Walnut pigeon holes with oak boxes behind over a feather banded fall front with interior baize lined hinged reading stand and enclosing an interior of 21 drawers centred by a pair of doors enclosing a bank of six drawers with a secret compartment to the rear of one side revealing further small drawers, the open recess above the writing surface with a lockable sliding well panel and further secret compartments concealed thereunder.
The base has two half width and two full width graduated drawers all of which run on side runners and the whole is raised on flat bun feet. All the interior drawers and boxes to the upper section with original ink manuscript paper labels recording their positions.
This is without a doubt one of the very finest and most complete early pieces Harvey’s have ever handled and it is a great privilege to have this on show here for the second time in decades. It is truly the most remarkable Charles II Period Burr Walnut Escritoire containing some 44 drawers and secret compartments in total. This whole piece is the most exciting and extraordinary quality.
