We are delighted to bring to you one of the finest examples of a very rare Edwardian (circa 1890) Ladies Rosewood Bureau cabinet.

The top pediment is removable via screws if required. The Bureau has a highly floral inlaid lid which is flanked by bluebell inlays either side with Geometric supporting accents and stringing throughout. The ornate lid unlocks and drops down to reveal a hidden fitted Writing Bureau interior complete with black gold tooled leather writing surface, pigeon holes to the rear and stationary compartment with inkwell holes.

  • Victorian Table

    I bought a restored Victorian table from here. When it arrived, it was wrapped incredibly well in bubble wrap, and had obviously been recently polished. It was immaculate. Friendly service, and a good price. Would definitely use again.
