Antique Painted Bureau / Writing Desk / Secretaire in Farrow and Ball Off Black
An elegant antique bureau / writing desk on long carved legs, it benefits from three drawers and storage compartments along with two further drawers and a lockable cupboard inside the fall front desk. This beautiful desk is well proportioned and is in good order with brass handles which I have cleaned and polished by hand (not painted over or resprayed!) and the desk lock and key also still working. It has been carefully sanded and restored and has been painted in Farrow & Ball's timeless 'Off Black' Modern Eggshell and the drawers have been lined with an ebony damask paper. This piece would be a fabulous addition to a hallway, dining room, landing or indeed any contemporary room.
This piece is in very good condition with no damage to note apart from the minor nicks, dents and previous repairs which are to be expected with vintage and antique pieces and adds to their character. I don't just slap on a coat of chalk paint on my pieces and call them upcycled - each of my pieces undergoes a lengthy process of restoration and preparation before being painstakingly stripped, cleaned, restored, woodworm treated if there is any sign of historic woodworm, primed and undercoated before painting a minimum of 4 coats to ensure a high quality finish.
