Irish, Oak, Escritoire-on-Stand. Circa 1680.

This is a very rare item of Charles 1st (Irish plantation period, circa 1680) early writing furniture in museum quality. Drop-front escritoire's being the early for-runners of the later bureaux. All original in every way with only the usual minor 'wear & tear'expected in an item of furniture over 330 years old. In oak with applied mouldings and constructed in two sections. The lower section with drawers & raised on twist turned legs. The upper section with a very large drop front ( 28ins top to floor leg room). Behind a combination of different size drawers and a central cupboard & secrete drawers. Original pear-drop handles & fittings. Cleaned, Waxed and as stated offered in Top Showroom/Museum quality. This is a very rare item indeed. Export enquiry welcome.
