Rosewood Veneered Bureau
Victorian rosewood veneered secretaire/bookcase, converted from a cabinet piano. Two glass doors open to two shelves over a converted cylindrical piano lid, that opens to reveal a pull out writing slide under open stationary holes, all resting on carved tapered legs. The top of the piece has larger beaded detailing with small decorative beading to most edges and around the original glass door fronts. Either side of the top section has two carved tapered columns. There is a small metal pull with which to open the glass doors and two carved circular handles with which to open up the secretaire section. The base has a concealed storage section fronted by two solid, bead edged doors with small metal pulls. The whole piece is on small casters. The exterior has aged to a wonderful warm colour. This slim piece is useful as it does not intrude too far into a space, as well as being a stunning piece of furniture in any interior...
