Vintage Black Painted Bureau/Writing Desk on Cabriole Legs in Farrow and Ball

Vintage Black Painted Bureau/Writing Desk on Cabriole Legs in Farrow and Ball


An elegant bureau / writing desk on long cabriole legs with two drawers together with storage compartments inside the desk along with a further small drawer. The desk supports open automatically when the writing slope is opened. This elegant desk is well proportioned and is in very good order with the original handles which I have cleaned and polished by hand together with the original drawer and slope locks and key still working. It has been carefully sanded and restored and has been hand painted externally in Farrow & Ball's timeless 'Off Black' Modern Eggshell and I have lined the drawers with a beautiful 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 3/4 coats to ensure a high quality finish.
