A fine and impressive 18th century c. 1780 Dutch bureau with a cylinder top that opens to reveal a complex cartonnier section. The bomb shape, elaborate brasses and carved lion's paw feet are all typical Dutch features, as is the use of walnut. Most Dutch and English bureau are fall fronts, while the cylinder top shows distinct French influence. As the cylinder is slid back, the leather topped writing surface automatically slides forward. The japanned black pilasters in the cartonnier are secret drawers. 130 cm wide at the front feet: the widest part. 60 cm deep. 113 cm tall.
