This is a handsome antique pedestal desk from Heal and Sons which dates to the late 19th century. The desk is made from satin birch, mixed woods and veneers and is a quality piece that will make a statement in an office or study. It has the benefit of splitting into three parts making it easy to transport and position in any home. The desk is set on twin pedestals each housing three graduated drawers which are all finished with atttractive turned wooden handles. Above the pedestals are three further drawers and the top of the desk is finished to the back with a raised drawer to either side. The top drawers are stamped with the Heal & Sons makers mark. The desk is very well aged and the wood has a French polished finish which has worn over the years and has a mid sheen finish.
Vintage House has clarified that the Antique Satin Birch Pedestal Desk by Heal & Sons (LA335475) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 19th century
The desk is in good solid structural condition with many cosmetic marks of age and use. The top is very aged and there are a couple of small areas of damage where the veneer has worn through. The pedestals have marks and knocks and a couple of drawer fronts have some missing veneer. The key for the locks has been lost somewhere in time. Basically it is very well aged and evocative looking, we have chosen to preserve its aged look rather than trying to restore it.
