19th Century satin birch pedestal desk

Price: £1875

Description: As you can see from this fine pedestal desk (Circa 1860) satin birch is a beautiful timber. So, you maybe surprised to learn, that it only found favour within the 19th Century for relatively short period of time - possibly it was too light and airy for the Victorians taste. However, it is a perfect choice for 21st Century interiors. The drawers to the desk are made from solid ash, and they have their full compliment of original locks (working & key supplied) plus nearly all (two had to be turned to match) of its original wooden knobs. The writing surface is at the correct height and their is plenty of legroom. Unusually, there has never been any castors to the underside of this desk, so no need to worry about undue wear to the floor or carpet. Now, after sympathetic restoration, re-polishing and the re-leathering of its writing surface has been completed, this antique satin birch desk is ready to be used and enjoyed for generations to come. Thank you Reg, for hand colouring, laying and decorating the new leather hide so well ! Measurements - 77 cm high x 122 cm wide x 60 cm deep Measurements of knee hole - 49.5 cm wide x 62.5 cm high
