The four long and graduated drawers retaining their original brass bail handles and escutcheons and with full elm original linings.

This is a most exciting and rare combination of timbers and the bureau is extremely well made and strikingly beautiful with a rich colour and lovely natural patina to the elm. The bureau retaining original timbers throughout, and set on original bracket feet.
