Walnut
Cm 110 high x 130 wide x 80 deep

This is a beautiful example of a "Butler's Desk," which was used in the 18th and 19th centuries by the head servant of a household. Basically a bureau combined with a standing desk, clothing and personal items could be stored in lower drawers and important papers and records would be kept in the desk, which closes up and slides into the body of the bureau when not in use. This piece is in particularly fine shape, exhibiting rich wood grain and a sliding desk mechanism that works perfectly.
