This beautiful slant front desk was made in England in the late 18th century. It is completely made in the finest quality European oak. It stands on bracket feet with four drawers fitted with the original bat-wing period swing grip handles with solid brass backplates above. Its interior houses valanced pigeonholes, drawers and a central vault that is detachable. It features a locking pin, that lock the vault and well. Once taken out, the vault reveals two hidden compartments at the back. The well accesses the compartment that is the fixed upper drawer. The well features three hidden compartments as well. This beautiful salt front bureau has great color and patina and it fully authentic and complete. All locks are in working order with the original keys provided. This desk has been cleaned and inspected in our workshop. Small gaps between the back cladding were closed and a fresh protective wax coat was applied.
