Truly delightful interior consisting of pigeon hole section where there are 3 drawers to either side with original handles, 4 central open oak shelves and to the centre a delightful original small opening cupboard with original brass escutcheon and working lock and key which when opened leads to a further draw with original handle.
Useful small size, just over 28″ wide. With three drawers of graduated depth in the base. Mahogany crossbanded fall and drawer fronts with boxwood stringing and brass knobs. Large inlaid ebony escutcheon and canted front corners with carved reeded detail.
The drawers each have lovely original brass engraved escutcheons and iron locks. A very charming Queen Anne oak bureau. Below the door is a spacious concealed well with covering slide. Such a versatile, very useful piece of furniture.
The entire interior is made of solid oak. Below the desk area there are five drawers, two smaller over three large ones, all with brass swan neck pulls. The desk is supported by four nicely moulded "ogee" type feet.
Here is a very charming Queen Anne country oak bureau. Wonderful rich, warm dark chocolate colour to the oak, having developed much warmth and character over the many centuries. So very charming and tactile.
This is a lovely piece of furniture. We downsized and it is too big for our new house (being 79" high, 41" wide and 22" deep). It divides into two, has 4 drawers and 4 shelves plus a nice key. We probably paid too much for it (receipt shown) but we loved it. Sadly we now need the space. We were told the handles were original.
