circa: 1910 width: 37 height: 81 length: 19 This lovely antique bureau bookcase was crafted in Edwardian England around 1910. The wood is a rich mahogany, with a lovely patina and a pleasing grain that are sure to look great in any setting. Solid brass pulls contrast beautifully with the wood, while the arched glass bookcase doors also look rather elegant. Detailed carving around the fall and the top moulding accents the overall appeal of this bureau, as do the quaint pad feet, which are as sturdy as they are attractive. With a locking bookcase containing three shelves, a desk with several compartments, and three large drawers, this bureau bookcase contains plenty of storage space. Each drawer of features hand-cut dovetails, which were usually machine-cut during the Edwardian period, so this is a particularly well-crafted piece. However, it has sustained some wear, most notably in superficial scratches and such on the sides and front (see pictures); one of the shelf supports has also been recently replaced. Otherwise, this piece is quite sturdy and remains in very good overall condition.
