Hi Everyone & Welcome!
This lovely piece would date from around 1900-1910, and is made from solid walnut.
It is both solid and sturdy, and will last you for many years to come.
Both an attractive and practical piece, it will be a feature in your home.
It has formed a beautiful warm patina that has taken 100+ years to achieve. All the minor bumps and bruises give it a wealth of character that you just can't find in a reproduction.
Stunning turned legs.
The original handles provide easy access to the drawers and look great.
Both generous sized drawers run smoothly and are dovetailed. There are the old locks on the backs of the drawers but I never received a key. If desired you could always visit your local locksmith.
The insert on top has plenty of character. Just imagine how many people have sat at this desk over the last 100+ years! I love this type of character but you could always get it replaced if desired.
The back side is finished nicely so it can be used in the centre of a room if desired.
This really is a great piece in good condition and ready to use. Please remember that all my items are either antique, vintage, ex display or preloved so will not be perfect. All faults and obvious imperfections will always be shown, and please expect the general wear and tear that comes years of use.
57.5cm high (leg room)
