Very fine quality 19th Century English antique mahogany pedestal writing desk by Gillow in excellent condition having been well maintained by former owners, this delightful desk retains a glorious antique patina. There are 9 forward facing smoothly running drawers, all with original wooden knobs and secured with Wellington style stops and working bramah key. At the rear of the desk are 3 simulated drawers, below which are the paneled doors enclosing space for ledgers, etc. The leather writing surface is a delight, being tan, original and embossed, with signs of much age beneath a mellow antique patina. The desk outer ends are paneled and stand on a substantial mahogany plinth. This is a very special and increasing rare type of desk, full of character.. It is ideal for office or home study.
