Circa 1890, exhibition quality mahogany cylinder bureau, by Waring & Gillows. The cylinder has a central fielded panel with matching flame mahogany. This is held in place by a beaded panel with foliate carving on each of the corners, and surrounded by crossbanding. This opens to reveal a stylish fitted interior, with a sliding section in the front with three leather panels. The central panel lifts up. Above this are several pigeon holes, drawers with ring pull handles and an inlaid cupboard in the centre. The fore edge has carved gardrooning, and this continues around the sides with a foliate carving on the corner. The sides of the desk have raised polished fielded panels, as does the back. There is a combination of a central drawer and four drawers either side with flame mahogany panels and circular handles. Beneath the bottom drawer is a stylish moulding, and the whole piece stands on bracket feet.
