A rare early 18th century oak bureau on stand, with stepped interior and well, raised on turned baluster supports united by a stretcher and terminating in ball feet.
The stand is integral and original. This design developed from the table top desks of the earlier period and were a forerunner of the more substantial bureaux with their integrated row of graduated drawers below the desk section.
It is very unusual to find these desks on their original stands, virtually all examples being the simple table-top variety which have been married to later stands or tables.
