Provenance: According to family records, this bureau cabinet is visible in a photograph of the main bedroom circa 1914, and was probably a piece acquired by Hubert Hutchings for Sandford Orcas Manor.

In historic country house condition and heavily bleached by the sun. Numerous small repairs, losses and replacements to the veneers and mouldings. The handles probably an early replacement. The doors originally fitted with mirrored panels but now with grained wood in their place. The interior of the upper section and the base retaining the original metalwork and a rich hone colour. The bracket feet replaced and originally fitted with bun or ball feet with consequent apertures at each corner. The bureau section is designed without pull-out lopers to support the fall flap, which is intended to rest on the frieze drawer below.
