Description / Expertise
A large, museum quality, 18th century, German, oak bureau bookcase with a serpentine front, original brassware and working locks
As fine an example of this model of German cabinet furniture as can be found, in exceptional original condition

- Characteristically handsome and beautifully made statement piece using the finest quality oak. - - The serpentine front elevates its status into a cabinet piece excluding gravitas.
- The original metalware is exceptional and amazingly intact as are the working locks with original keys. Most likely due to the provenance of having remained in the original schloss, inherited by descent by the male heir.
- In addition to the aesthetic this is a hugely practical piece with masses of storage for papers and writing equipment in the top part and the drawers below.
- In 2 parts

Private collection, my photographs were taken in daylight with an iPad and do not do it any justice.
