About this Piece
An ingenious mahogany bureau desk in the George III manner. The sloping fall front encloses an elaborately fitted interior of faux books and hidden drawers and cabinets. The staircase gallery interior has suede panelling with a short frieze drawer below flanked by dummy drawers. Below this are two short and two long drawers on bracket feet whilst the sides have further drawers plus hidden drawers. Inspired by the Grand staircase and gallery at Althorp.
From a collection inspired by furniture within Althorp House, endorsed by Earl Spencer.
Brights of Nettlebed offer the opportunity to own an exquisitely hand-crafted item endorsed by Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, inspired by the collection at Althorp House, built up over 500 years and 20 generations of the same family for their home.
We have sponsored the unmissable Althorp Literary Festival for the last four consecutive years - hearing famous authors in the setting of one of Englands best loved historic houses has proved to be a winning combination. We have also been fortunate for Earl Spencer to give two fascinating talks at our Dorset showroom with all proceeds donated to Whole Child, a charity devoted to improving the lives of orphaned, abandoned, abused, and neglected children worldwide. Donations are also made by us in relation to our sales of Althorp Living History furniture.
