This antique writing table is nicely crafted from good quality rosewood, a timber much favoured by furniture makers for its warm colour and attractive grain which has been fully exposed as a result of the restoration process that this fine old writing table has recently undergone. The close up photograph below shows the writing surface which has the kind of finish only found on items of furniture that have been around for more than a century, (almost two centuries in this case) and which, despite being well used, have also been cared for.
