A wonderful original Victorian period leather top pedestal desk in mahogany. This was made in England, it dates from around the 1860-1880’s.
It is of amazing quality and is a great size. The drawer fronts have lovely satin wood inlaid borders and high quality intricately designed brass handles. The drawers are also graduated in depth & have fine dovetails. The leather top has been hand coloured and gold tooled. There is an original top back gallery, designed to stop items falling off. The back is unpolished as seen in the images, because it’s mean’t to back onto a wall.
This desk breaks down into three pieces for ease of transport, and we have just had it fully re-polished; the condition is excellent for its age.
