A small and pretty antique oak bureau, painted in a distressed shabby chic style. The bureau has three main drawers and one small internal drawer. The original locks work and there is a key. This is very well made and a stylish small bureau, with cabriole legs and hand cut dovetail joints to the drawers.

The original varnishes and polishes have been removed prior to the primer undercoat being applied. The exterior has been painted with three coats of Farrow & Ball 'Bone' eggshell, which is a beautiful cream / pale grey colour with a hint of pale pale green. The interior filing area has been painted in a French 'Lavadin' eggshell from Technic paints, then over painted in a loose dry wash with Autenico 'Antique White' chalk paint. The exterior and interior paint work has been distressed to reveal the underlying oak, and finally a coat of bees' wax has been applied.

There has been some minor cracking to the wood over its long life, and one of filing dividers is missing.

78cm wide, 99cm high, 43cm deep.
