A superb George I burr walnut & feather banded bureau bookcase of compact proportions and retaining excellent colour and patina.

The top section with an internal arrangement of adjustable shelves with concave moulding out-stepped at each corner to form pillars which border an opening single door with a bevelled mirror plate and single candle slide beneath.

The fall of the bureau section opens to reveal a central cupboard and an arrangement of pigeon holes and drawers, with a leather lined writing surface. The fall is supported by a pair of retractable lopers which are separated by two short feather-banded, oak lined drawers fitted with oval escutcheons and brass ring pull handles, below a further three long graduated drawers. The bookcase is supported on burr walnut bracket feet. A truly superb quality piece, with choice use of quality burr veneers throughout its construction.
Excellent. Minor restorations to chipped veneers, waxing, later mirror plate, brassware believed to be original.
The collection of the late Francis Egerton, supplied by Mallets, Bond Street.
