A delightful early George II period walnut Bureau of superb colour and patination.

Having superbly figured fall front enclosing well fitted interior above four long drawers with replacement brass handles, raised on original shaped bracket feet.

Dating to the early 18th century this bureau retains a wonderful warm rich colour and patination that can only be achieved through years of being loved and cared for.

It has a nicely fitted, but not excessively elaborate interior and although the drawer handles are replacements they are of the exact style of the originals and through the original handle holes which of course means no ugly marks or holes.

It is in remarkably good overall condition with just the standard old marks, scuffs and scrapes you
would expect on an item of this age. 

Polished and ready to go straight into the home, it would suit a variety of spaces around the home.

Whether being used just as a functional piece of furniture at the side of a room to add a different look compared to a standard chest of drawers, or whether being used for its full original purpose with the fall down and as a writing desk, it will look magnificent and undoubtedly add a touch of 18th century georgian sophistication to any interior.
