' I cannot recommend Mark highly enough - the entire process was smooth, surprisingly fast, the painting was just as described (and more impressive in person), packaging was very secure, and Mark was extremely friendly and helpful. All of this makes me very happy to be a customer again in the future.' Georgian Toilet Mirror. Customer in Australia .. ''Breathtakingly beautiful Mahogany toilet mirror ! Delicately dovetailed drawers are as smooth as silk. The acorn finials are a treat. The mahogany has a marvelous lustre and fine patina consumate with its age. Beautifully packed with extreme care it arrived in pristine condition. This seller is an absolute joy to work with ! Many thanks.'' Document Cabinet. Customer in the UK ''A gorgeous piece of furniture. It was really well packaged for delivery and seller sent some useful notes about the locking mechanism.''

Description
This is a beautiful Ladies Victorian walnut Davenport of very high quality. Built to the finest standard and craftsmanship, with choice burr walnut veneer and inlaid with marquetry. Original leather writing surface. It has a stationary, pen and ink case to the top, with a hinged lid. This is removable from the desk, for use elsewhere. There is a small concealed space under the ink pot compartments, accessible by sliding out 2 of the dividing panels (sadly no jewellery, rings or hidden notes were found)! The storage compartment under the writing slope is nicely finished in a pale veneer - satin birch, and there are 2 internal drawers, with ebonised knobs. The profiles of the drawers are also detailed with ebonised trim for good contrast. It has 4 full depth drawers to the right of the cabinet, and dummy drawer fronts to the left. The back of the davenport is veneered also, so the desk can free stand in a room, and it has castors for manoeuvrability.
