Antique Walnut Pedestal Desk
A beautiful antique walnut desk dating from the late 19th century. It has an arrangement of 9 drawers around a central kneehole, each with their original turned wooden knobs. The top has an inset leatherette writing surface and the desk stands on small wooden bun feet.
The whole piece is excellent quality with chamfered edges and beautiful figuring on the walnut. The reverse side of the desk has been neatly finished so the desk can be used as a centre piece as well as against a wall.
The kneehole is a good size for working at, measuring approximately 21 1/4" (54cm) wide x 23" (58.5cm) high.
The desk is in good condition for its age and has been well looked after. It has a lovely rich patina and the drawers open well. The inside of the drawers are generally clean and tidy with just some minor ink stains. There are some normal light signs of age and use, some knocks and light marks, some small chips around the base and some of the knobs are slighlty chipped but nothing detrimental and the writing surface is in good condition. The desk has been cleaned and polished and is ready for use.
