This is a gorgeous antique late Victorian inlaid mahogany cylinder bureau, by the renowned retailer and cabinet maker James Schoolbred & Co circa 1890 in date.
It is decorated throughout with beautiful marquetry decoration of urns acanthus scrolls and harebells with satinwood crossbanding.
The cylinder opens to reveal a fitted interior with four small drawers and a pair of pigeon holes. The writing surface has the original inset green leather gold tooled writing surface and it slides out so there is ample space to write your letters.
It has a single frieze drawer that is stamped "Jas Schoolbred & Co", and the bureau is raised on square tapering legs that terminate in spade feet with brass castors.
Complete with working lock and key.
It is a fabulous decorative piece which will look amazing wherever you decide to place it.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, polished and waxed in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
