The fall front is fitted is carved and is lockable. Below the top section are three spacious drawers, all carved with a different design and finished with later drop handles set on decorative back plates. The quality of the carvings is really superb.

MEASUREMENTS height to top-106.5cms height to fall front-78.5cms width-93.5cms at the top, 96.5cms at the base depth-52.5cms CONDITION The bureau is in solid structural condition with many cosmetic marks of age and use. Over the years it has had some work and there have been various small repairs made here and there. The drawer handles are later antique replacements. The base has suffered some wood worm damage and there have been new pieces of wood added to the back of both side panels and some of the beading to the fall front is new.
