Gentleman's Bureau Bookcase
An extremely good example of an early 18th century red walnut Gentleman's Bureau Bookcase. This piece is crowned with a broken arch swan neck pediment decorated with acanthus leaves which rest above a blind fret foliate panel, very reminiscent of the work by Benjamin Goodison/James Moore. There are a pair of flat panel arch top doors covering an open, four shelf, interior. These doors are flanked by columns which rest above simulated brickwork pedestals. There are a pair of candle slides fitted to the centre. The base having a fall front bureau with a flap enclosing a most intricate and elaborate shaped interior with simulated brickwork door to the centre. Below this are two short and three long drawers which are cock beaded, oak lined and retain the original ornate handles. These are flanked either side by columns to match above. The whole of the above resting on original double shaped ogee feet.
