Italian Style Marquetry Writing Bureau Desk Antique Storage

Product Description

An Italian Style reproduction marquetry writing bureau inlaid throughout with scrolling foliage and fruit, the serpentine form enclosing a part-fitted interior above two long drawers on cabriole legs. The two long drawers have wonderful detailed handles.

The writing bureau has its original key so you can lock it. Pull down the bureau to reveal a writing desk or a place to put your laptop. There are 3 small drawers which pull out and have dovetail joints in which you can keep smaller items such as paper clips, pens, elastic bands etc. Above them is a small shelf.

The two larger drawers pull out to reveal plenty of room for storage and again have dovetail joints.

This writing bureau would normally sell for over £1000 but it does have some age related damage where the marquetry has raised creating lines in it. I have tried to photograph the worst parts. When you stand back and look at the writing bureau it does look in good condition overall but when you inspect closer and especially in the direct sunlight you can see where there are lines where the Marquetry has raised. The worst part is on the top where the wood is raised underneath. The places visible are on the top left top of the bureau, some to the left hand side, some on pull out desk. The front is not too bad.

This writing bureau is a wonderful piece of furniture, and to be honest, I personally would be quite happy with it looking upon the age related marks as patina. However, due to the age related damage to the marquetry on the bureau I could only describe it as in average condition for its age.

On first inspection this bureau looks absolutely wonderful - it is only when you get up really close and feel it with your hands and in very bright sunlight you can see the damage to the marquetry. There are small raised lines running through some of it.

Someone with restoration skills could turn this writing bureau back to its former glory.

I have tried to take photos of the worst parts and you can see the type of damage I am talking about but if you require further photos I can send them on request.

The measurements are

Width: 92cm Depth: 44cm (at the widest point) Height: 92 cm

Our motto is to reuse and recycle these wonderful antique and vintage items so that they get a new lease of life and at the same time you will have a unique, personal item of good quality in your home that will also contribute to the world's carbon footprint.
