Attractive Antique 18th Century Inlaid Oak Carved ...

A lovely antique oak bureau. We date this bureau to the 18th century.

The bureau sits on four sturdy bun feet. The bureau is fitted with a drop front over a cupboard.

The drop front is supported on two wooden support rails which pull out from above the cupboard doors. The rails are fitted with small brass handles. The drop front has an inlaid star design and decorative applied mouldings.

The interior is fitted with various pigeon holes, small drawers and a drop well. The drop front has a leather writing area.

The drop down writing slope and cupboard are fitted with locks (key supplied).

The cupboard has two hinged doors and a mid height removable shelf. The doors are decorated with the same inlaid star design and mouldings.

This lovely antique bureau remains in a solid condition with surface markings commensurate with age and usage. The drop front has a slight bow which makes it more difficult to lock properly. There are some age splits to some of the panels and the bureau has some historic repairs. The back panels have some historic worm holes which have been treated twice to make sure. Some of the edges have some age expected indentations.

This remains a very stylish and elegant antique bureau. It will continue to provide sterling service for many years to come.
