Object Description

A Superb Quality Mid 19th Century Satinbirch Wood
Pedestal Desk Having Replacement Tooled Leather Inset
To Crossbanded Top Over Nine Frieze Drawers With 
Later Brass Knobs To Front And A Well Veneered
Reverse Raised On Original Plinth Base

(The perfect size desk for one person in almost any size office 
this charming mid 19th century desk is of very good quality and 
due to the rarely found satinbirch veneers it has a silky, mellow
appearance which would match into absolutely any existing colour
scheme or environment. Clearly a well thought out piece that has been
made with no expense spared to is also nice to discover that it has
solid mahogany drawer linings which ensure the drawers still run 
incredibly smoothly even to this day and also to discover that the
back has been just as well veneered as the front and sides
allowing the desk not only to be used against a wall, but 
also just as happily in the centre of a room where it is visible 
from all perspectives. The leather has been recently replaced and 
is therefore in exceptional condition and the desk is very much 
ready to be placed straight into a home, or office, where it can 
start being used immediately as of course it is more 
than fit for its original function.
