Smart Vintage 1960s Jentique Oak Bureau with Drawers & Writing Desk
Neat, efficient vintage bureaus come with considerable charm and these days they’re having something of a renaissance with increased demands for working from home. Less space-consuming than a conventional desk, they can be closed when the working day is done. Bureaus are also great options for kids’ / teenagers’ rooms to help them get organised with a dedicated, unintrusive work station. This 1960’s light oak bureau from renowned British furniture maker, Jentique, is a beauty and ticks all the boxes for sharp good looks and original design details along with practicality. Four generous drawers provide masses of storage and pull down the double-lock (super security!), hinged door to create a desk platform. Pull up a chair and you’re set to focus and work.

This original, vintage piece is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good – excellent, used condition. It has been thoroughly cleaned inside and out, and a natural wax polish applied to the external wood. All four drawers slide with ease, feature dovetail joints and have clean, tidy interiors with only light signs of wear. The top desk section features pigeon holes and two further small drawers. Again, it’s in good clean, tidy order throughout and the hinges for the pull down door are in good working order too. The top section has two locks and both original keys are supplied. There are some minor marks and knocks to the exterior wood surfaces including a small veneer chip to a drawer front which has been discreetly filled. Please see our photo. It’s very well put together, solid and stable including when the pull-down desk in place. The four legs have the original, adjustable brass feet securely in place. The Jentique maker’s brand stamp can be seen on the back. Please browse our photos for a good sense of its condition.
