Early Figured Walnut Bureau Cabinet
A very good and early James II/ William and Mary Period highly figured walnut bureau cabinet, the moulded cornice above a pair of quarter veneered feather banded doors opening to reveal 11 variously sized drawers above two tiers of 8 pigeon holes, the quarter veneered feather banded fall opening to show conforming drawers and pigeon holes with a slide opening to a well and secret compartments and a leather lined writing surface all above three further full width quarter veneered feather banded drawers and the whole raised on bun feet. This piece comes in three sections, a practice which had largely died out by 1700. All the mouldings are cross grained. Circa 1685.
