Rare George II solid yew-wood bureau bookcase
with quarter columns flanking the finely shaped panelled doors above bureau with fitted interior and secret drawers, on bracket feet. North Wales, c.1740
A finely executed piece of country furniture and particularly rare being made entirely, bar the back-boards, from solid, thick-cut Yew (one would typically expect oak). The finesse of the arch-top panels and the choice of timber may suggest that the piece was ‘Estate made’, and the squat proportions and quarter-columns indicate an origin of Wales, or the North-East of England.
