This is an interesting antique Edwardian Writing Table Desk featuring inlaid decoration and dating from around 1900.
The writing table is crafted from beautiful rosewood and is supplied complete with a sumptuous gold tooled green leather writing surface that can be raised or lowered (tilted) as required for comfort when you are writing. This section also lifts up to reveal a secret compartment for storing small items of stationery and other essentials including stamps, letters, pens, ink, etc.
By way of further decoration this Edwardian writing Table has been inlaid with swags and harebells by a master craftsman. The quality of the work is very satisfying to look at.
By way of storage, the antique writing table is fitted with two half-width drawers located in the frieze together with three additional and very useful drawers situated beneath the back of the kneehole. These drawers provide perfectly proportioned storage for all the stationery you need whether you are writing for work or leisure.
The writing table is mounted on the original brass and porcelain castors and it is still fitted with the original handles.
A further point that will be appreciated by the new owner is that this writing table or desk, has been beautifully finished front and back so that it can be placed anywhere in a room and does not have to be placed against a wall unless you wish to do so.
