Queen Anne Burr Walnut Bureau

This stunning Queen Anne burr walnut bureau cabinet is comprised of over one thousand sections of hand cut Scottish walnut laid in the traditional manner on Caledonian Pine and Oak, using powderless glue as did 18th century cabinet makers. These exceptional pieces of furniture have always been the most challenging for cabinet makers. The exquisite blend of beauty and practicality transcends 300 years of furniture making. Highly figured walnut is laid in a cross-grain pattern of alternating light and dark shades. Flowing shapes and moldings catch the light and demand to be caressed, while dancing patterns of book-matched and quartered burr walnut panels show changing images every time you look. The obvious care and attention to detail that went into this piece portray the heart and soul of the cabinet maker, a lover of wood. Taking approximately a year to create, this piece will delight the true connoisseur.
