A George I Burr Walnut Bureau Bookcase
England, 1715

An exceptional George I period burr walnut bureau bookcase of rare small proportions. The walnut of a magnificent mellow colour throughout, and with herringbone inlay. In lovely condition with lots of rare features. The upper section with a moulded cornice above a single glazed door and a pull-out candle stand - the lockable door, retaining its original bevelled glass, opening to access the three moulded-edge adjustable shelves. The lower bureau section with a fall front supported by lopers opening to reveal a fitted interior of magnificent colour with a variety of pull-out drawers, and a writing surface, all superbly veneered, above four long drawers and a very rare pull-out full-depth walnut slide within the moulding positioned under the first drawer. This top drawer also fitted with a variety of compartments. With later brass ring handles, and standing on bun feet.

What we particularly like about this piece: the magnificent colour of the walnut and the very rare small size.
