Description
This is a lovely mahogany desk dating from the late 19th Century. It is a pedestal desk with 2 large drawers below the writing surface and a further 6 small drawers in the pedestals. The drawers have small turned wooden knobs and the desk stands on turned bun feet. The top of the desk has an inset leather writing surface with gilt tooled edge. There is a raised gallery around the edge which sits in small holes on brass pegs so as it can be easily removed for transport. It was likely a military or naval piece and typical of campaign style furniture it is excellent quality and very solidly built. The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions just ask.
