A beautiful mid-late 18th century English George III mahogany slant front bureau desk with fitted interior containing multiple drawers and hidden compartments. Desk has a wonderful old and well-patinated surface that shows a superior sheen with the years of waxing. The four drawers have period correct construction with cockbead molding and hand dovetailing throughout. Brass locks, pulls and keyholes are all working and also appear original to piece. Supported on bracket style feet and finished with molding along base. Planked backboards. Would have included more pictures if there was room!
Exterior of cabinet is superb for age with expected imperfections. Bracket feet show wear. Piece is clean and was in active use in owners estate. Interior of desk has a decent amount of wear from years of use and some finish loss where a spill may have occurred. As stated, believe the finish is original and untouched
