Late Georgian Bureau SOLD
Mahogany bureau in excellent condition
Good proportions, colour and patination
Height 42", depth 21", width 37"
Very heavy indicating the use of high quality mahogany.
Four long drawers with recent oak runners and with hardwood (mahogany?) linings.
Nicely shaped replacement brass drawer handles.
Original brass key escutcheons.
Original lock on fall front
Original key which fits all locks.
Seven small internal drawers with mahogany linings.
Replacement small brass drawer pulls and one original ring pull on cupboard drawer.
Nine open internal storage shelves
High quality cut dovetails throughout
Internal small cupboard door has its original lock but the key doesn't work
Replacement green leather with tooled edging
Original backboards with some minor shrinkage
Original bracket feet
Minor issues (to be expected given 200+ years of use):
The fall front has warped slightly but it still locks
There is some minor cracking of the veneer on the fall front but it is stable
There is a small piece of the bottom left side fall front edge missing
If anyone is interested I have a Victorian photograph of the bureau with wooden knob drawer handles obviously after a late Nineteenth Century "modernisation". The original handles would have been either plate or swan neck brass.
All in all a very nice high quality piece of Georgian furniture!

Buyer to pick up or arrange a courier.
We would recommend the use of a courier who offers a packing service to ensure there is no damage in transit.
Note the bureau is very heavy as mentioned above.
If you wish to view you are more than welcome. The photographs don't do it justice in our opinion.
