Late Georgian Mahogany Glazed Bookcase/Bureau with pigeon holes(Ref: 451a)
A late Georgian bookcase/bureau in a rich mahogany with Astral glass panes.
It has 3 adjustable shelves and 2 over 2 drawers underneath the Bureau.
The Bureau consists of 3 small drawers and 8 vertical, 3 horizontal pigeon holes.
The leather to the top is green with a lovely worn patina which has a gilt lining border.
The frieze across the top and the bottom is beautifully carved and the brass tear drop handles are a sign of quality.
One of the key holes is missing its brass lining but! It does have keys to fit all locks!
There is a small crack in one of the Astral panes as I have photographed which is hardly noticeable. We discussed replacing it but the glass is so gorgeously undulated due to its age that we felt this would spoil it.
