QUEEN ANNE BURR MAPLE & KINGWOOD TRAVELING BUREAU

England, 1705-10, In the Manner of Coxed & Wooster

 

 

 

The burr maple veneer “stained” in lampblack to resemble tortoiseshell – in the manner of cabinetmakers John Coxed and Thomas Wooster (1690-1736) – banded to the edges and center with kingwood, the surfaces radiant and now softly faded to a glorious color; having a rectangular top above a sloping fall (with original lock and key), and opening to a veneered surface and green morocco-lined recess, the sides with brass carrying handles; the lower section with a pull-out dressing mirror flanked by rectangular lopers, having a shallow drawer fitted for two inkwells to one side, the other side with a vacant deep drawer, the whole raised on a moulded plinth above shallow bracket feet

 

Note :

Lampblack “stained” maple or elm is often referred to as “mulberry”.

Most “tortoiseshell-like” surfaces, and likewise the small bureaus, were produced by

John Coxed, and Coxed and Wooster from c1700 through 1720, most c 1705-10.   

Existing traveling bureaus of this period are quite rare.

 

Condition : Excellent, with wear appropriate to age and usage; original locks and brasses throughout;

the morocco leather lining to the interior recess with good age and possibly original;

the mirror with bevel and quite thin, mercury lined and likely original; there is a small pin hole in the front

of the interior writing surface for a securing pin that went through the mirror frame
