This is a handsome antique desk which dates to the late 1800s, a Victorian Gothic piece which will suit an antique office setting. The desk is made of mahogany and mixed woods and is heavy and solid. It has a rectangular top set on twin pedestals housing six graduated drawers, these surround a central drawer. The drawers have attractive turned mahogany handles and the pedestals are set on deep base plinths. I have hand painted the desk in my own mix of black water based paint before distressing the finish for an aged look and then waxing the paintwork for protection. The paintwork is solid colour and the finish is smooth with a nice sheen.

The desk is in good structural condition with various cosmetic marks of age and use. The drawer interiors are in clean condition, the central drawer has a crack to the base. The right hand side panel has some shrinkage crack and around the base of the desk there are some small areas of damage to the edging. The desk top has quite a lot of shallow dents and scratches below the painted surface. Basically it has an attractively aged look
