Great Vintage Oak Minty of Oxford Bureau Bookcase With Original Invoice

This one is looking particularly sharp having enjoyed a careful 1 owner previous life. We get offered lots of Mintys and unfortunately most have succumbed to a shed or barn existence but this one survives in great order having been gently used. It has a lovely tone to the oak and the particularly good looking combi is very useful too. This one comes with its original invoice from Minty along with the period brochure and key – all helping its cause.

The chrome lock fitting on the inside is a nice period touch as is the shaped base. As mentioned, the storage and desk combo is so useful with the well kitted out interior pigeon holes which can be used for correspondence, books or for storing your laptop. The drop door bureau doubles as a desk surface and two glazed bookcases below.
Workshop report - This one has been well cared for and sensibly used. We have lightly waxed the piece and it is glowing well in its original finish. The glass on all slides are crack free. The chrome lock is shining well with no pitting or cracks. The inside of the bureau is lightly marked but nothing nasty. Expect a well-cared for piece with no offensive marks, just signs of day to day usage. The key and lock work and have been lubricated for good measure.

A classic piece of Minty in fine order.

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.
