A George I walnut bureau. This unusually small bureau retains all the original brass plate handles and escutcheons and has acquired a well faded mellow colour. The interior is fitted with four pigeon-holes, four open compartments, four small drawers and a well with sliding lid. Percival Griffiths formed virtually his entire collection under the guidance of R. W. Symonds. After Griffiths’s sudden death, Symonds personally purchased this bureau some time prior to the 1939 sale at Christie’s of the remainder of the collection.
