The bureau is simply styled, the top fitted with a wide fall front which opens to reveal a fitted interior with pigeon holes and small drawers for stationery and correspondence. The fall front is fitted with a colourful leather scriver which is in aged condition. Below the top section are four spacious drawers, all finished with later brass swan neck drop handles set on simple round back plates. The bureau is set bracket feet and the wood has a lovely wax polished finish which has a very good sheen.
