Vintage bureaus like this one can be an attractive and useful addition to any home. It is like having a small, fold-away desk with a chest of drawers below. This particular piece was made in England around 1960 and is still in good condition today. The piece is stamped with a maker’s mark from Bevan Funnell, an English furniture maker of outstanding quality.
Walnut Vintage Bureau
The wood used is a brilliant burled walnut that has been accented with straight grain walnut cross banding on the fall of the bureau. Burled walnut has a wispy grain and is extremely attractive as you can see. Inside the top is a desk section that measures 27.75″ wide and 20″ deep. The desk is 27.75″ from the floor. There is a nice green leather insert on the fall that is great for writing if you need to take quick notes. Inside are some cubbies and small drawers for storage. This little desk is great for a laptop. It is supported by two pull out slides and is strong enough to hold substantial weight. The fall also locks and a key is included.
In the chest section below, the four drawers provide ample storage. Each large drawer is adorned with two intricate swan neck pulls. They are also constructed with dovetailed joints, making them very strong. Finally, all drawers open and close easily, which is quite important in any furniture.
This vintage bureau is in good condition. A few small wear marks consistent with age and use exist on the leather and wood. The lock functions easily. All of the drawers slide in and out with minimal effort. The feet are strong and sturdy. This vintage bureau would make a welcome addition to any home or office.
