Attractive Unusual Little Oak Art Deco Students Bureau With Seat c1930

Super looking and very unusual piece of 1930s English oak furniture with a gentle leaning towards the Art Deco period. Not seen one before so we thought we would have it!

We would guess that it’s a play on a student’s desk/bureau with a drop down writing surface – big enough for a laptop and a little pull out seat which tucks into the front fitting flush and not forgetting the bookshelves either side.

Workshop report – The little piece sits in great historic order with the drop down front working as it should with the bonus of a working key. The chair slots into its space well and we still have the original Rexine in place – an easy replacement if you require new upholstery, Mark our upholsterer would charge £45 plus fabric if you desire a change. The piece sits firm with no wobbles or repairs. The tone is good to the oak and it’s a fairly heavy piece bearing in mind its proportions.

A super piece of 1930s British furniture with little proportions meaning it will slot into the tightest of spots if required.

Dimensions - Specifically the Writing Surface: Height 74.5cm x Width 45.5cm x Depth 24-45.5cm

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.
