Original Vintage Remploy Oak Writing Desk Bureau
The retro writing bureau is having something of a renaissance now that folk are working from home so much more. It offers a practical solution for someone needing an organised work station but perhaps doesn’t have the space for a conventional desk. A bureau tidies away neatly, not taking up too much room, plus this particular one offers further storage with two drawers and a roomy, shelved cupboard underneath, perhaps for tucking away your laptop when you’re done. This vintage, British-made piece from Remploy is teak veneer and solidly made with a neutral, unobtrusive design. It will sit quietly in a family room ready to be opened when required. Bureaus are also excellent options for teen / student bedrooms too.
This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good, used condition. We have cleaned and lightly polished it with a natural beeswax polish but have otherwise left the original finish alone. The drawers and lower cupboard doors move with ease and closures are in good order. There is a height adjustable shelf in the cupboard. The two drawers are lined with a vinyl. We’ve left this in place as removing would leave a sticky residue. The pull down desk door also moves with ease. The internal woodwork is tidy and clean with only minor scuffs and marks. The black vinyl writing plate is in great shape too. The external wood is also in good order although there are some small veneer chips on some of the edges – these can be seen in our photos but are not particularly noticeable. We can see no signs of any repairs. The maker’s label can be found inside the same door – Remploy. They made good value, solid pieces throughout the sixties and seventies. Please refer to our photos for an accurate sense of the condition of this piece.
