Welcome to Mersham Manor Antiques-Enquiries-07510 503344. A little bit about us. We are a husband and wife team, and have spent many years developing our knowledge as collectors of fine antiques. Along the way we have restored many period properties, and have enjoyed furnishing them in our favourite ” English Country House Style” and because of our passion for anything old & beautiful, and appreciation of real quality and craftsmanship, which sadly today`s furniture generally does not offer, we decided to turn a much loved hobby / obsession! Into a business and pass our beautiful finds onto other people to enjoy. With our endless “treasure hunts” for the original and authentic, we offer a diverse selection of antique furniture and quality decorative items, ranging from the 17th century to the 20th century in all price ranges, making it possible for everyone to own a little piece of history, and true craftsmanship. We have been collectors for over 30 years and have been successfully trading for 15 of those years. We regularly work with interior designers and fellow dealers. We are happy to source any particular items you may be looking for. Our knowledge and expertise allows us to source many varied and high quality items. Our showrooms are within our beautiful. Grade I listed Medieval Manor House in the pretty village of Mersham in Kent. A versatile and very attractive imposing profusely carved standing bureau over a large storage cupboard. Constructed in the Victorian era from oak component parts dating from the 17th century. The top shelved super-structure is late Victorian. We acquired this interesting piece originally from a restaurant in a period building in Canterbury Kent, where it made a very useful item, as it has alot of storage space, plus can be used as a standing desk with the bureau section great for storing paper work etc. The door handle to the cupboard is particularly lovely as it is a completely wooden mechanism, which turns to open with a large wooden ring handle. Please study the pictures which show all the very interesting beautifully carved component parts to the cabinet. The two posts which flank the cupboard door where originally 17th century bed-posts, and are heavy and solid. The wood shelving internally has a wonderful patination which is an indication of it`s great age. The bureau section has two solid oak drawers with turned bun-handles flanking central pigeon holes, with compartments to the front, which is great for stationary storage. The cupboard has a vast amount of storage space having shaped shelves to each side flanking tall compartments which could be great for bottles or files. The shelved top can be removed for ease of moving. In excellent antique condition. Very solid sturdy and strong. Rich dark oak in colour. The dimensions are taken at highest, widest, deepest points. Height of lowest part of the bureau front-103.5cm. Collections in person are very welcome, we are happy to assist with loading.
