£14,500.00
A delightful early 18th century solid walnut bureau bookcase having attractive
double domed top with replacement mirror plates to panelled doors
enclosing well fitted interior above well figured fall, two short and two long
drawers with replacement brass plate handles raised on original
shaped bracket feet.

(This wonderfully attractive bureau bookcase is of typical early 18th century
design and constructed from beautiful solid walnut which retains a rich, warm
colour. The double domed design of the top adds really elegance and although
the handles are replacements they are of the design that would originally have
been in place. Also the mirror plates in the doors are relatively new replacements
meaning there is no foxing, or silvering of any kind to worry about and the piece
will look just as at home in a modern design interior as a traditional one. It is rare
to find one of these in solid walnut, rather than burr veneers and in our opinion this
adds a significant amount of charm to the piece).
