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. 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.
