Handsome Vintage Grey Painted Writing Bureau / Writing Desk
Who wouldn't want to work from home on this handsome rustic solid and heavy antique writing bureau / writing desk complete with the original worn leather skiver writing pad?! It benefits from four drawers externally and a drop down desk with supports which pull out. Inside there is a further small drawer and storage compartments. This lovely desk is well proportioned and houses the original lock with key still working together with the original drawer handles which I have hand cleaned and polished. The bureau has been carefully sanded, restored and cleaned and has been hand painted externally in Farrow & Ball's timeless and daringly dark 'Downpipe' Estate Eggshell. The drawers have been lined internally with a beautiful dark patterned 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 dents and imperfections which are to be expected with the age of this antique piece and adds to its character. Locks can seize and drawers may stick on occasion; these are part of the charm of antique pieces of furniture. If you're looking for a brand new pre-fabricated item in mint condition then my pieces aren't for you! If you are, however, looking for a unique, one-off antique or vintage piece with charm, character and a story to tell then you've come to the right place! I don't just slap on a coat of chalk paint on my pieces and call them upcycled - each of my pieces undergo 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 3/4 coats to ensure a high quality finish. My pieces aren't distressed or shabby chic - they will distress naturally over time with general wear and tear.
