We have for sale a slightly unusual, handsome and very usefully sized Victorian mahogany campaign desk dating to around the Mid Victorian period. This attractive and very usable Victorian mahogany campaign desk is unlike most other campaign desks in that it comprises of a small and very well built Georgian style kneehole desk on bracket feet fitted with a long single upper drawer over a single smaller hidden drawer and three graduated drawers on either side, all around a central cupboard with two shelves. The desk drawers and cupboard are fitted with lever locks, with the lock to the top drawer carrying the British Government Crown over VR (Victorian Royal cypher mark). The top and side drawers are also fitted with good brass handles and each side of the desk is fitted with a large fold out brass handle designed to allow easy transport. All of the drawers are oak lined and the desk retains its original oak back. When carried the desk is very well balanced on the handles. This desk is perfect for any sized home office and provides loads of storage space in the drawers and central cupboard.
Penrose Antiques Ltd has clarified that the Victorian Mahogany Kneehole Campaign Desk (LA355958) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1870
The desk is in a remarkably good decorative and functional condition bearing in mind it is has probably been a very well traveled piece of furniture. However, the drawer handles are probably later replacements and the top drawer base has a couple of age related cracks.
