This is a stunning Queen Anne style hardwood writing bureau with brass inlay. It has cabriole style legs and is beautifully ornate with intricate carvings, brass handles and delicate patterns created with the inlay. A drop down lid reveals small storage compartments and a drawer with a brass handle. Below this are 4 small and 1 large drawer again all intricately carved and inlaid with brass. The glossy lacquer finish gives a hint of the orient to this fabulous vintage bureau reproduced in the 80s/90s. There is no lack of attention to detail as even the back of the bureau has a panelled design on it ensuring that it doesn't need to be hidden against a wall but could be used to divide a multi-functional room.
Practically, it can be a beautiful desk to sit and work from, easily accommodating a laptop, tablet and phone, with room to store pens, paper and notebooks if needed.
The bureau is in very good condition with only a few marks on the inside of the desk lid (please see photo).
