Seller: vintage.house (913) 100%, Location: Denbury, South Devon, Ships to: GB, Item: 262725385294 VINTAGE HOUSE-ABOUT US We are a small family run company based in South Devon and have been restoring furniture for several years after deciding to turn our hobby into a business. We professionally restore antique and vintage pieces, painting some which need updating and preserving those which look handsome left untouched. We love anything old and antique and take great care in the preparation and repair of all items, treating old woodworm and fixing joints as a matter of course. PAINTED BUREAU This is rather elegant and dainty bureau which is perfect for use as a desk or laptop space, its compact size lends itself well to a small room or alcove. The bureau is made of mahogany and is quite lightweight, rather romantic in style and dating to the second half of the 20th Century.The bureau has a fall front which opens to reveal a useful part fitted interior with a single drawer, this is set over a single scrolled wide drawer.The fall front is lockable but sadly I do not have a key. The bureau sits on very slim shaped legs and the top has a small shaped back plate. I have hand painted this piece in 'Hardwick White' from Farrow and Ball, a pale grey shade which is an ideal neutral to compliment many colour schemes, the finish has been gently distressed and then waxed for a durable finish which has a slight sheen. CONDITION The bureau is in good condition with minor cosmetic marks here and there, various little knocks and dents to the wood. The most obvious marks are a small chip of wood missing on the top right hand side of the back plate and on the drawer there are a few small marks near the left hand handle, as shown. There are some aspects of red peeking through the paintwork, this is the colour of the wood underneath. MEASUREMENTS height - 40 & 1/4 inches plus 1 & 3/4 inches of back plate height to drop leaf- 29 inches width - 29 inches depth- 17 & 1/2 inchesThe measurements are taken at the widest points.
