  • Early 1900's Australian postmaster's roll top desk with pigeon holes

    A roll top desk with pigeon holes that was originally used in an Australia Post Office. Early 1900's (1930-40?) construction, solid wood and quite a heavy piece of furniture. Has previously been used to store medical supplies in a doctors practice. It would make a great shop fitting for displaying small items or at home to tidy up a study space. Overall dimensions of the piece are 1300mm (w) x 1770(h) x 600(d), there are three horizontal rows of four pigeon holes across, each hole measures 210(w) x 280(h). A fitting has been removed from the left side of the piece, it has been filled with wood putty but it is an obvious repair as the hole was quite large. All part of the desk's history.

Roll Top Desks

The roll top desk has been a popular item of office furniture since the 19th century. It has its roots in desks like the tambour and pedestal desk, and is unique in the feature of a pull-down scroll of slatted wood. The fact that the roll top makes it easy to hide away unsightly paperwork and mess makes it very appealing, and removes the need to clear away any correspondence that may be in progress. An office mainstay for many homes and businesses in the 19th century and into the 20th century, they were easy to mass produce as the wooden slats were all identical and attached to a cloth or leather strip to hold it all in place to ensure smooth movement when opened and closed.

Roll Top Desk Features

Roll top desks with drawers provide plenty of storage for your paperwork and stationary items. They are designed to be an all-in-one, self-contained office and were ideal for the 19th century home or small office. Often, drawers are constructed on either side or one side of the desk. These are big enough to hold books and files. Smaller drawers on the desk table hold pens and miscellaneous small office items.

Roll Top Desk Construction

Traditionally, roll top desks were made from heavy and expensive woods, such as oak. This made them a very durable and hardy item. Beautiful polished woods, such as blackwood, rosewood and mahogany, are also characteristic of antique desks. Modern roll tops are constructed from all kinds of materials with lightweight pine being an affordable and sustainable choice. Most woods are polished, although some are painted white for a French provincial feel.

Antique Roll Top Desks

An in-demand antique item, roll top desks were turned out in numerous quantities of varying quality, due to their vast popularity and the fact that they were easy to manufacture. As many of the woods used in the 19th century for furniture construction have now become rare and expensive, roll top desks hold their value well. A great way to recreate the ambience of bygone days, they're decorative whilst still being functional. Roll tops are among the more popular antique desks due to the variety of wood finishes and colours they come in, meaning there are plenty of options to blend in with contemporary decor.
