FULL DESCRIPTION
A most attractive bureau de dame c. 1890.

The elegant cabriole legs with brass sabots to the feet, the knees with gilt brass mounts and the top with further mounts and a delicate cast brass band below a finely worked solid brass openwork gallery. The interior with six small and one long drawer, each with original brass button handles and giltwood borders, with an attractive shaped apron over the central pigeon hole. Central frieze drawer flanked by two deep drawers, all with original brass escutcheons and locks and a working key, the tambour front rolls smoothly up and down, again with original escutcheon lock and working key.

Of small size and a beautiful colour to the walnut, this desk dates from 1875-1890 and is in very good condition for age with no breaks and only minor wear, dings and marks consistent with age and careful use. 

Very pretty indeed, solid and a good height to sit at. The working surface ample and a laptop will fit easily in the central frieze drawer.
