Finely crafted from carefully selected and very attractive burr walnut, this Victorian Davenport Desk is finished on all sides and can therefore be placed anywhere in a room.
Dating from around 1870, the desk has been looked after carefully and is offered for sale in original condition.
Let’s take a closer look at the desk, starting with the hinged top at the rear which, when lifted, reveals an interior that has been fitted with various divisions for the storage of ink, pens, paper, envelopes, letters and other items of stationery.
The hinged writing fall is complete with its original burgundy gilt tooled leather insert and lifts to reveal a walnut interior complete with two small, but useful, drawers.
The front of the desk is supported by beautiful decorative hand carved solid walnut cabriole legs. These have their original bun feet which are fitted with recessed brass castors.
To the side of the desk you will note that there are four useful drawers on one side whereas the other side has faux drawers which enables it to be placed anywhere in a room without concern for there being an unfinished side – useful and practical.
We are pleased to confirm that the desk is fitted with fully working locks and is supplied with the original keys.
The desk measures 85cm high x 56cm wide and 56cm deep. If you prefer inches, that would be 2 ft, 9 in high x 1 ft, 10 in wide x 1 ft, 10 in deep.
