Handsome Mid Century 1960s Writing Desk / Bureau

Here’s a fine example of a piece that combines function and form – a neat, good looking secretaire desk / bureau. Less space-hungry than a conventional desk, bureaus like this are also great options for kids’ and teenagers’ rooms to help them get organised with a dedicated but discreet work station that can be closed away. This 1960’s teak bureau is handsome, slimline and compact, and comes with plentiful storage with a large lower cupboard and pigeon holes in the top section. Pull up a chair, pull down the desk door and you’re set to focus and work.

This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good – very good, used condition. We have cleaned the piece thoroughly inside and out, applying a natural beeswax polish to the exterior wood but otherwise leaving the original finish alone as it’s in such good order with just light wear. The top door pulls down to create the desk / writing platform. There are pigeonholes inside for storage, the door hinge and closure is in very good order and the interior is clean and tidy. The lower cupboard features sliding doors which move with ease. There is a fixed shelf inside. Again, the interior is in clean and tidy order. The exterior wood is in good – very good, overall order with only minor scuffs and marks here and there. There is one particular blemish to call out on the top – this is shown in our photos.  The bureau is sturdy and solid with no signs of repair. Sadly there is no maker’s mark but we believe it is a British original and dates from the late 1960s.
