Circa 1750, late George II mahogany bureau, with wonderful rich solid mahogany top and large open brass escutcheon. It opens to reveal a simple but stylish interior consisting of double banks of drawers, and open sections with stylised pelmets. The centre door is inlaid with chequered inlay and opens to reveal further drawers. There is a leathered writing surface. Below the bureau consists of four graduating drawers with wonderful cast brass original handles. The drawers have a lovely moulded edge. Very simple frieze on the bottom and the bureau stands on very stylish ogee bracket feet. This bureau is very similar to works by Giles Grendey of London. Excellent condition, wonderful colour. Good example of a writing bureau.
