  • Beautiful antique bureau,
    Dear JamesThe bureau has arrived and is very beautiful – I am delighted.Do you know anything of its history? It would be very interesting to know where it has been. (Don’t worry if not, but I do wonder who has sat where I am now, and hope they got as much pleasure out if their bureau as I do.) Thank you for arranging everything so well.Best wishesSueAntique bureau
  • Tony Purell,
    I have my writing desk ... Victorian circa 1890 walnut with red leather insert. AMAZING though i would have loved the keys to lock the drawers. delivered in perfect condition (well for 130 years old perfect). I only ask if Driscolls can fine me a small walnut chest of drawers to go with it! 5 or 10 stars all the way for me. Thank you so much.
  • Antique bureau to London,
    Dear James, Just to confirm that I received my Bureau today, and that I’m very pleased with it. Can I also ask you to pass on my grateful thanks to your two delivery men. They did a fantastic job in getting the Bureau up onto the first floor for me. Not only did they cope with the difficult stairs, but they also had an extremely hard time in getting the Bureau up and over the top banister rail. A job very well done. Thank you.
