 Early to mid 18th Century English Provincial Oak Bureau. With 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. 

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.
