A Small Queen Ann style Walnut Bureau
This small lady’s walnut bureau with burr walnut fall and drawer fronts, came into us from a private customer. The polish was very dull and the whole bureau was in need of a little care and attention. Some veneers were chipped and missing, the fall no longer fitted and the automatic loafers did not work.
First we replaced the missing veneers and adjusted the fall and loafers so that the fall fitted properly. We then cleaned and burnished the surface with a mixture of oil and spirits. Finally we gave the whole bureau a coat of bees wax polish. We then returned the bureau to the customer.
