About the object

A Delightful 18th Century Mahogany Bureau Bookcase Of 
Attractive Small Proportion Having Dental Cornice Above Single 
Gilt Framed Shaped Mirror Door To Top And Well Figured Flap 
Above Three Long Drawers With Original Brass Handles To Base 
Standing On Original Shaped Bracket Feet 

(A very good example of it's type this bureau bookcase
retains a good color & patina and it has been constructed 
using good quality mahogany. The overall size and proportion 
is rarely found and it is small enough to fit just about any space or 
environment one could begin to imagine. The mirror 
plate in the door, whilst probably not original, has certainly
been in situ for a significant portion of the items life and has
therefore aged accordingly. The elegant brass handles are
original as are the bracket feet. Another nice touch is the 
shaping of the mirror plate panel in the door which of 
course just adds to the overall elegance.)
