Early Georgian bookcase bureau, 18th century. Of walnut with banding and herringbone inlays, this desk is a model of convenience in any period. The interior contains pigeon holes and small drawers for all manner of desk equipment, as well as a slant writing lid which opens to offer a stable surface for a lap top computer or other devices. It is possible to be modern and elegant as well!
Above, a deep molded cornice rests over a pair of mirror paneled doors in burled walnut which open to access your data materials, perhaps including such things as books, papers, and casual collection of clever objects. Below, the slant lid case holds four graduated drawers, all with cock beading, herringbone inlays and banding. Brasses are a later but correct type. The whole two part case rests on a substantial bracket footed base. Correct style case side-lifts are later.
Warm wood tones abound throughout this Chippendale model for a elegant room. H. 6′ 9″, w. 39″, d. 24″.
