This is an exquisite vintage burr walnut pedestal desk dating from the late 20th Century.
This desk has been accomplished in the Victorian manner and was beautifully made by a craftsman from burr walnut with oak lined drawers and attractive 'feathered'crossbanding.
The top is inset with a superb inset tooled leather writing surface which has been hand tooled with gold leaf decoration. The brass drop handles are typical of the period and add elegance to this sumptuous item.
The desk features three drawers in the frieze with a drawer above a double depth drawer in each pedestal, the double drawers are fitted out as filing cabinets.
In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, waxed and releathered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
