Item Ref

Attractive large antique Victorian oak cylinder bureau bookcase.

A lovely large antique oak cylinder bureau bookcase. We date this bureau bookcase to the late 19th century.

The bureau bookcase comes in two sections, the cylinder bureau base and the bookcase top.

The bureau sits on a plain plinth base. The bookcase section sits on top of the bureau and is screwed together.

The bookcase is fitted with an integral stepped cornice.

The front of the bookcase is of two panel design with each panel being a side hinged door. The doors are glazed with glass panes. The right hand door is fitted with a working lock (key supplied). The left hand door is secured with rear mounted bottom lever bolts.

The interior of the bookcase is fitted with three height adjustable full width wooden shelves.

The base bureau consists of a cylinder front over a large cupboard. The cupboard has a full width interior shelf.

The cylinder front lifts up to reveal the fitted interior. It is fitted with various pigeon holes and drawers.

The lower pull out writing area extends out and has an adjustable writing slope in the centre. The writing surface has three green leather inserts. The cylinder front is fitted with a lock (key supplied).

The bureau bookcase has a height of 86.5" (220cm) with a bureau height of 44.5" (113cm), an overall width of 42" (107cm), a base depth of 21.5" (55cm) and a bookcase depth of 11" (28cm).

This lovely large oak bureau bookcase remains in very good solid condition with only very minor surface markings commensurate with age and usage. The finish has a few minor marks and indents from past use. There is a bit of wear to the veneers at the bottom of the plinth and there is a tiny piece of moulding missing off the outer right hand side at the back of the cornice. There are some filled age splits to the outer right hand side of the base section and to the frame beside the cylinder front at the right.

This remains a very stylish and elegant antique oak cylinder bureau bookcase. It will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
