Vintage Painted Black Writing Bureau desk with fall front

  • £375.00

This is a handsome antique reproduction writing bureau which dates to the latter half of the 20th century.

Made of oak and mixed woods it is solid, heavy and well made, a quality piece which has stood the test of time well.

This piece is ideal for an office or study and makes a nice alternative to a traditional desk. It is a useful work space for any home, perfect for using a laptop or writing letters.

The bureau is simply styled, the top fitted with a fall front which opens to reveal a fitted interior with pigeon holes and three small drawers for stationery and correspondence. The fall front is fitted with a red scriver and is lockable, the key is present. The front is decorated with a linen fold design.

Below the top section are three spacious drawers, all finished with turned wooden knobs, the top drawer is lockable.

The bureau is set on an open stretchered base.

I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of black water based paint before distressing the paintwork for a gently aged look. The paintwork has been waxed for protection and has a nice smooth finish with a mid sheen.

The bureau is in solid structural condition with various small marks of age and use to the interior. There is an ink stain to one of the pigeon holes.
