Smaller in proportions than some and rather good-looking with lower and higher astral glazed doors and Chinese inspired blind fretwork throughout. Late Victorian nudging towards Edwardian, this piece would sit well in a period property and is of the right size to fit into a smaller home if required.

Workshop report – The cabinet is pretty much original. The glass in all doors remains in place. The lower cabinet possesses one shelf with the upper glazed section having 3 shelves. Overall the cabinet has historic knocks and bumps nothing new, excessive or unsightly. The drop down bureau fortunately possesses it original tooled green leather writing top be it age worn and the interior of this section is all in situ. The lock to the bureau does have its key, however both glazed sections have locks but not the keys. The upper section closes shut with the lower section just a little off kilter – but no big deal or annoying. The decorative brass handles on the drawers are original. The piece breaks into 2 for easy movement

An attractive and nicely aged piece of late Victorian furniture with function.

Dimensions - Overall: Height 193.5cm x Width 88.5cm x Depth 42.5cm

Billy Hunt is an independent partnership based in a wonderful Victorian Farming Buiding once used to stable Dray Horses for Bass Brewery and with the assistance of technology, enjoys serving customers nationally and internationally. The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We choose to source across the UK believing that the British Isles offers a splendid mix of fine quality, true eccentricity, creative design and exceptional craftsmanship which very few can equal.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing. You will notice when viewing our collection, we are not afraid to evolve furniture, recognise the need to modernise but are also content to leave “as found” aiming to create a piece or pieces that are beautiful, distinctive and a delight to live with.

Our wish is to show you some wonderful items that you would love to own and offer a service which is personal, professional, considerate and a pleasurable experience. You are able to view our stock in person by appointment, just contact us to arrange a convenient time here.
