Anglo-Indian Rosewood Drop Front Bureau – SOLD

Early 19th century

A magnificent British colonial drop front bureau in rosewood with original brass carrying handles on the sides. It has a beautiful stepped and serpentine shaped interior with small drawers that are segmented over three rows. The larger sized central drawers are flanked by smaller drawers. These sets of drawers are sided by carvings of long tailed parrots, a symbol of joy, intellect and abundance. A lidded box recess at the center of the interior reveals more storage space.
The lower section houses two short drawers above two long drawers, all with brass loop handles against a solid back plate. The two long drawers with beautiful brass escutcheons. The base displays a scalloped apron with a carved motif at center front, a design repeated at the two sides. This bureau stands on four short cabriole legs ending in a claw foot.

The bureau has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The rosewood has a dark shade with a striking grain.
