Description

A delightful George I period walnut bureau bookcaseOf diminutive proportions having recently re-silveredOriginal bevelled mirror glass to single cabinet doorEnclosing fitted interior with adjustable shelves overThree long drawers raised on original bracket feet ( A beautiful example of it's type this bureau bookcaseretains a lovely warm colour and has been constructed from extremely well chosen, highly figured walnut veneers. 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 in the door is almost certainly the original glass plate, and has been recently re-silvered, giving the best of both worlds in terms of originality, but also function.The brass ring handles are not the originals but are of the style which it would have been fitted with originallyand therefore sit most comfortably on the piece. Its rare to find the combination of good condition, diminutivesize and relative originality on something of this age of course and these are hugely desirable qualities.)
