A Chinese Export padouk wood bureau on stand of faded colour, the upper section with fall front, containing pigeon holes above three short drawers with brass drop handles, the stand with turned hinged front legs supporting the fall front.

Padouk is very much associated with Asian furniture made for the colonial market. On a stylistic level, this piece closely resembles late seventeenth century pieces from the reigns of Charles II, James II and William & Mary. Its construction, in cabinet-making terms, is more closely associated with pieces made in the East at this time than European equivalents.
