A stunning 19th Century cylinder bureau, with exquisite and extensive inlays, probably Italian or German in origin. Roll-top bureau mechanism is a little stiff, and the red-leather insert shows signs of wear, but these are to be expected for a piece of this age. Not only is this a beautiful piece of furniture, but with the increasing popularity of tablets and laptops, we think bureaux have become eminently practical again. Storage comprises three long-drawers beneath roll-top bureau with 9 small internal short-drawers and an internal shelf. Measures H117.5 x W113.5 x D55 cm (extended depth 78 cm).
