A fine George I figured walnut & feather banded bureau of excellent small proportions, being only 31” wide. The top central figured panel, bordered by feather banding and cross-banded in walnut, below the fall again with central figured panel, cross banded in walnut bordered either side by inlaid feather banding. The fall opens to reveal a stepped interior with a central door inlaid with arched chequered stringing, four chequered strung doors an arrangement of eight pigeon holes with central well with sliding cover. Below the fall the frieze has a further figured walnut panel bordered by feather banding, bordered by a pair of lopers.

Below three graduated feather banded drawers, fitted with brass plate handles and escutcheons, the bureau supported on bracket feet. A fabulous piece of furniture, of particular note is the fantastic colour, patina and attractive interior.
Excellent. The bureau has been cleaned and waxed. Minor restorations to small pieces of veneer, other old minor restorations. The handles are replacements, the feet apparently original.
Private collection Wiltshire, latterly private residence Kent.
