A superb and rare William & Mary walnut seaweed marquetry escritoire. The segmented moulded cornice, over a cushion moulded drawer profusely inlaid with strung marquetry. Below the fall exquisitely decorated with a surround and central symmetrical marquetry panels, opening to reveal and extensive arrangement of inlaid drawers and pigeon holes with a central cupboard section with further drawers within. A prominent waist moulding separates the two parts of the pieces with an arrangement of two short over two long inlaid, oak lined drawers, with engraved lock escutcheons and drop handles. Both sides again inlaid with symmetrical marquetry panels, the piece stands on bun feet. An unrepeatable opportunity.

Beverley Battersby was a noted collector in the London area for over 30 years, she acquired much of her collection from some of the most reputable London dealers.
Excellent. Minor repairs to lose veneers and mouldings, cleaning and waxing. The bun feet are replacements.
From the collection of the late Beverley Battersby, London.
English, William & Mary, circa 1690.
