James II –  William and Mary Period Figured Walnut Bureau Cabinet


Circa 1685

A very good quality early James II /  William and Mary Period highly figured Walnut Bureau Cabinet. The moulded cornice above a pair of quarter veneered feather banded doors opens to reveal 11 variously sized drawers above two tiers of 8 pigeon holes.

H: 75.25” / 192cm x W: 38.5” / 98cm x D: 24” / 61cm

All the mouldings are cross-grained. The quarter veneered feather banded fall opens to show conforming drawers and pigeon holes with a slide opening to a well and secret compartments and a leather-lined writing surface all above three further full-width quarter veneered feather banded drawers. The whole cabinet is raised on bun feet. This piece comes in three sections, a practice which had largely died out by 1700.

Delivery in the UK mainland is included in the marked price.
