Description

This superb small art deco desk dates from approx. the 1930s, but may be a little later. It is very much in the art deco style with rounded edges. It was made by Maco and retains its original maker's metal plaque inside the top compartment. The plaque also gives the patent number for the piece, which is 413216. The desk is constructed from what we believe to be walnut, some solid, some veneered over a wooden frame. The desk consists of a concealed metamorphic top section, which folds out to reveal a triple green leather writing surface, a pop-up correspondence rack and two original glass and plastic / Bakalite inkwells. The central writing surface lifts up to reveal a secret small comparment. Beneath the metamorphic top is a central drawer, flanked on either side by a cupboard, each with a removable shelf inside. The drawer and doors retain their original wooden handles. The desk is supported on an inverted art deco ribbed base at either side with turned bun feet.
