Rare Burr Walnut George II 18th Century Kneehole Desk, circa 1730-1740. England

Rare Burr Walnut George II 18th Century Kneehole Desk / Bachelor’s chest, circa 1730-1740. England

The superb quarter veneered burr walnut top is bordered by a fine feather stringing, cross-banded and edged with cross-grain ovolo mouldings.

Six oak lined drawers bearing their original locks and handles and escutcheons surround the central burr walnut cupboard which opens on its original shaped H-hinges. The shaped frieze is veneered in well-chosen sections of burr and opens as a hidden drawer.

The desk closely relates to a labelled example by Elizabeth Bell, illustrated in ‘Early Georgian Furniture 1715-1740’ by Adam Bowett, page 123, plate 3:56.

Elizabeth Bell succeeded her husband Henry in 1740 and her son Phillip succeeded her in or before 1758. They worked in the foremost region for fine furniture production in the late 17th and early 18th century, St Pauls Churchyard, London.

Condition

Good. Wear consistent with age and use. It should be noted the piece is of the most wonderful colour and retains original brass hardware, locks and feet.

Dimensions

Height: 29.53 in. (75 cm)
