Description
A truly delightful early 19th century faded black Chinoiserie decorated 4 drawer desk in lovely unrestored “country house” condition with a pleasing and very attractive lived in look but perfectly usable. The desk sits on 4 shapely cabriole legs and is free standing or could be placed against a wall if required. There is a very well established patination and craquelure to most areas of the piece with Chinoiserie decoration depicting oriental figures, fauna, wildlife and landscapes, all age faded and quite delightful. The little brass Dutch drop axe handles are sitting in place and again are pleasantly age tarnished, very much in line with the rest of the desk. We have some interesting chalk writing to the inside of the left drawer mentioning a late Victorian auction - all drawers are running well. I would assume we are missing the arched recess to the front but not particularly noticeable to be honest. We of course have aging and a little loss of paint here and there but nothing’s perfect. It is ready to place and sits firm with no wobbles. An utterly delightful and seldom seen piece of English early 19th century furniture. Billy Hunt has successfully focused on British furniture and lighting since 2012 and always has an interesting ever changing selection of carefully chosen pieces from the early 1800s to late 1970s. Our base is a large Victorian 2 storey red brick barn on a wonderful traditionally run country estate in Staffordshire. We are able to offer a first class upholstery service and also assistance in interior design if requested. Our extensive client base covers: the celebrated, interior designers, film companies and ladies and gentlemen like us who enjoy our professional, friendly and knowledgeable approach.
