Antique Desks Making a Comeback<< Back
This early to mid 18th Century English Provincial Oak Bureau has 2 short and 2 long drawers on raised bun feet, a wonderful rich, warm dark chocolate colour to the oak, having developed much warmth and character over the many centuries.
This wonderful piece of antique furniture measures 94cms wide x 99 cms high x 55 cms deep and is priced at £850.
The fall-front opens to reveal a very charming fitted interior, with an arrangement of six pigeon hole compartments with a shaped frieze at the top of each hole, eight separate small drawers with delicate drop brass handles and a hidden well with covering slide and two sliding lopers to support the hinged tooled brown leather topped fall.
The drawers have lovely Queen-Anne style brass handles and original iron locks.
This is a classic early 18th century desk with great storage facilities and offering wonderful patination. The condition is excellent antique condition, having general signs of use consistent with age.
