This is a fabulous antique writing table in figured walnut, made in the Victorian manner dated about 1900.

We are delighted to offer this wonderful antique writing table in such splendid condition for just £1,350. It has been superbly crafted from a particularly beautiful walnut with a very distinctive figure. Walnut has been used as a premier wood for furniture making for centuries due to its durability and its beauty. Figured Walnut and Burr Walnut (also known as Burl Walnut) are widely considered to be the most attractive types of walnut. Using walnut veneers takes a great deal of skill to join, match and blend them ensuring a balanced finish. As such, burr walnut tends to be used on furniture that has been made by the most skilled craftsmen.


This antique writing table also has a very attractive hand-tooled and gilded brown leather writing surface fitted onto the top.

particular feature of this lovely desk are the hand carved barley twist legs which as an added bonus stand on their original brass and porcelain castors.

It also has decorative brass handles which add a distinct element of style to this lovely piece.

It features three ample drawers which also make it practical to use as a desk as well as a table. It is finished on all sides so that it can be placed in the middle of a room making it suitable for any location.


This antique desk is offered for sale in excellent condition, which you can confirm through the photos.
