Northern light

Early 18th century German Baroque bureau cabinet, Hannover

The arched top carved with shell and female portrait, the upper part with one door enclosing several drawers, the fall front enclosing a fitted interior above graduated drawers on square tapering legs.

By repute,  this bureau was a wedding gift from Frederic, Prince of Wales to Lady Anne, 2nd Countess of Orkney and William O'Brien, 4th Earl of Inchiquin in 1720.

19th century George III style giltwood framed sofa

With a shaped back, outswept arms terminating in scrolls and a serpentine fronted seat on tapering fluted legs and spade feet.

Swedish 18th century Rococo gilt mirror

All that is missing is the right client with the right house.

Now playing: ABBA - Voulez-Vous

AD - suprisingly, and I know it's all relative, but they weren't crazy money.
