A very attractive and good quality George III period mahogany bureau
bookcase having unusual castellated and carved cornice above pair of 13
pane astragal glazed doors, superbly figured flap and four long drawers
with replacement brass oval plate handles raised on original shaped bracket
feet

(A fine example of a functional and elegant Georgian bureau bookcase this piece
has been constructed from excellent quality mahogany. A lot of effort has gone
into maintaining as much elegance as possible with the various forms of decoration
used for the cornice and the elegant astragal glazing to the doors. The shelves within
the top are adjustable allowing for a variety of item sizes to be contained within. The
superbly figured sloping fall encloses a most attractive interior which would originally
have been designed for somebody to use as a temporary desk before folding the fall
back up to enclose any messy papers etc if required. The oval plate handles are
replacements, but they are old and sit most comfortably on the piece. The elegant
bracket feet are original).
