A magnificent burr walnut William & Mary bureau bookcase
Period: William & Mary
A superb late 17th century burr and figured walnut bureau bookcase. With an unusual bonnet top that has a marquetry inlaid fan, the bookcase has arched mirrored doors above a fall that opens to reveal a fully fitted interior that includes a central pull out section that has secret drawers behind. With a waist moulding that is typical of the late 17th century, the bookcase is a very good colour throughout.
