FULL DESCRIPTION
This beautiful and high quality desk was made in the early 19th Century but has the appearance, patina and colour of a desk made 100 years earlier.

The walnut veneers are very thickly cut and have a fantastic colour and figuring with endless small burrs and a deep natural patina. The veneers are bookmatched and cover the entire desk including the sides. The oversailing top has wonderfully shaped walnut mouldings and is inlaid with fine featherbanded borders as are each of the three original oak lined drawers. 

The Queen Anne engraved brass handles are original and the desk is in excellent condition with only minor marks and bruises. The elegant cabriole legs have scallop shells carved to the knees and terminate in slender slipper feet - no damage, breaks or repairs and the desk is extremely heavy and robust. 

The drawers are beautifully shaped, curving forward to match the shape of the desk frieze and all of the drawers open and close smoothly and have solid oak drawer linings in excellent condition.

Stunningly beautiful and far better in the flesh than our photos show - strongly recommended.
