Reprodux Bevan Funnell Serpentine fronted Georgian Style Burr Walnut Bureau. The drawers & desk are clean inside & out - Complete with key. Overall height is 95cm while the height to the writing surface is 69cm.
It dates from the first half of the twentieth century, but is older in style. Beneath this are two drawers with beautifully shaped fronts. It would benefit from being re-polished or painted. There are no keys present for the locks.
Fitted back section with small central drawer and 5 'pigeon holes'. This is for a narrow Reproduction Antique Style Fall Front Bureau/Desk which would be ideal where space is limited, in a childs room, etc as it is only 51cm (1' 8") across.
Inlaid panel to the fall front which has 2 pull out supports. In ternally it has a tooled edge inset green faux leather writing area with gilt effect details. Fitted back section with small central drawer and 3 recesses/'pigeon holes'.
The nicely presented fall features crossbanded borders and inlaid stringing, as do the 4 cockbeaded drawer fronts which are dovetailed and fitted with polished brass handles. The fall is fitted with a polished brass escutcheon and a working lock with key, as is the top drawer.
This is in need of a restoration job, hence the low price. It's still in very good condition and would make a great project, love the little drawers and cupboard inside, has the original key too. It's been well loved and used since it was given to me. Don't have the space or time to restore it myself, resorted ones go for about 250
Although it is a reproduction it still appears to have a reasonable amount of age, probably dating from around the 1970s, and has working locks & a key for the desk section and top drawer - 1 key works both locks.
The crossbanded fall is fronted with prominently grained yew wood veneers and a circuit of boxwood inlays, as are the 4 cockbeaded drawer fronts which are fitted with antique finished brass handles. The drawers are mahogany lined and dovetailed.
A fine quality mahogany glazed secretaire bookcase. Fitted four graduated drawers below with dovetailed jointing and clean mahogany lined interiors and raised on a carved apron and bracket feet. The upper section with a carved and reeded flared cornice topped with a finial above astragal glazed doors enclosed lighting and adjustable shelving.
Bookcase has 13 pain glass doors & 4 adjustable shelves. Hand made from solid mahogany, stained & polished with shellac polish. Lovely piece of furniture in showroom condition. If you like this style of furniture, you will not be disappointed, a lot of love & skill has gone into making this.
