An Antique Writing Desk For All Tastes And Budgets

When you look for a vintage writing desk, you will notice that there are many different styles available, and LoveAntiques.com has lots of different ones from which you can choose. You can purchase an antique French writing desk, an antique oak writing desk, an antique mahogany writing desk, or an antique ladies’ writing desk. You can even select a vintage writing desk from a specific period such as Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian, or from the 18th, 19th or 20th century.  

What To Look For In An Antique Writing Desk Bureau

There are certain things that you should look for in an antique style writing desk before you purchase it. One thing that you should be looking at is the condition of the piece, and you should also ask the seller if it has ever been restored. If it has been restored, you may find that the patina is lost which can reduce the value. You should ask about the material used, as you could find that an antique walnut writing desk may not be as valuable as one that is made from oak. You should also ask for the provenance of the item in question and ensure that if available the dealer supplies this when you complete your purchase.
