Arts and Crafts Bureau Bookcase


Whether for penning your first novel or simply writing letters to loved ones writing bureaus are wonderfully practical and in the case of this bureau bookcase, beautiful to look at too.

The stained glass design on the door of the upper bookcase section is an absolute delight complimented by the delightful Arts and Crafts styling making this piece as much a piece of art as it is a very functional piece of furniture.

We have restored and stripped the wood of this marvellous bureau bookcase then refinished with a clear lacquer to accentuate the grain and give a hard wearing finish. As is often the case with pieces of this age there was a fair bit of work required to bring it back to life. The bureau section has had new hinges and handles on the drawers. There are ink stains in the compartmented section inside the bureau, the oak at the back of the upper section has a crack and there is a ring mark (see photo) on the lower shelf section. All of these elements add to its genuine character however rathr than detract.

Please bear in mind that you are purchasing a natural hardwood product which as a result of its inherent characteristics may require some minor adjustments after reaching the environment of your home.

By purchasing our furniture you agree to undertake any simple necessary adjustments yourself. Certain issues will not be deemed as defective or faulty, for example:

  1. On rare occasions, due to extreme climate changes in shipping, doors and drawers may swell slightly making them stiff to open. This issue will normally resolve itself within a matter of days once the timbers acclimatise to their new environment; however an alternative remedy may be to move the drawers around.
  2. Occasionally the movement may not settle and a small amount may need to be shaved from the bottom of the drawer or door. A simple application of furniture wax will then seal any adjustments.
  3. While every effort is made to match all colours and finishes, wood is a natural product and there may be variations in colour, grain pattern and shade.
  4. As is common practise when crafting hardwood furniture, certain degrees of filler may also be used to ensure a uniform finish.
  5. Our furniture is handcrafted from natural hardwood timbers and accordingly there may be slight differences in size between products of the same description. All product dimensions specified by us are approximate.
  6. As each product is crafted by hand, there may be differences in the spacing around doors and drawers; however, this will always be within our quality control tolerances. Many of our items are antique or used pieces which have been lovingly restored. They are not new, and part of the character of these pieces is the wear, marks and occasional dings that they accumulate through the years. Where possible we will try to show any noticable marks or damage in our photos and descriptions, but minor marks and wear are to be expected. While we endeavor at all times to capture the colour and finish of each piece in our photographs the exact colour displayed varies from screen to screen or on different web browsers. Therefore we can not guarantee that your furniture will be the exact colour viewed on your screen or monitor, and can not accept returns in this instance. This does not effect your statutory rights relating to online purchases.
