Description

This attractive antique pedestal desk dates from the 19th Century. It is constructed from mahogany, some solid, some veneer over solid wood. The desk is of a good large size, and is around five foot wide. It has a red leather writing surface with gilt tooling. Beneath the top is a long drawer, flanked on either side by a smaller drawer. Each pedestal consists of three graduated drawers. The drawers retain turned wooden handles that are later replacements. All the drawers retain their locks, although most are missing their escutcheons and no key is present. The desk is supported on a plinth base.

Please that it splits down into three pieces for ease of transportation.
