Late Victorian Antique Mahogany Pedestal Desk

Ref: CA598 / LA106826

This item on LoveAntiques has been sold.


Description

A late Victorian antique office writing desk. Made from mahogany and featuring a leather/rexine inlaid top. There is a wide central drawer flanked by two smaller drawers across the top of the front of the desk. Each pedestal contains three graduated drawers, each fitted with an individual lock and brass swan neck handles. All drawers are traditionally dovetailed.

The desk separates into three parts: the desk top and two 'pedestals' which makes tranport and access into a house much easier. To fit back together the top is simply placed on top of the pedestal and sited onto four locating blocks in the corners of each pedestal

Standing on a plinth base the desk would originally have been fitted with castor feet but these have since been removed.

Condition

This is an antique item of furniture and as such should be expected to show some age. Please study the pictures supplied carefully to ascertain condition. As can be seen in the pictures there are various marks to the desk and the leather top. I have photographed the most heavily worn/damage areas to give a general idea on condition. There are scuff marks to the inside of the knee-hole. The leather top could do with replacing.
