This is a fine quality antique English Victorian 3ft 6” mahogany and leather pedestal office desk, circa 1870, in excellent condition. The desk incorporates a moulded top, which boasts a new burgundy red inset leather skiver, decorated with elegant gold tooling. Therefore, the leather is in very good condition. The top section features three drawers, including a wider central drawer, with a further three drawers to each pedestal blow, therefore a total of 9 drawers. The drawers are designed with straight fronts and retain their original mahogany turned knobs. The drawers are constructed with hand-dovetail joints, with mahogany linings and quarter beading (a sign of quality). All the drawers retain their original working brass lever locks. The desk comes with a working key. The pedestals sit on their original moulded plinths. The desk is polished on all sides, which means it can be freestanding and situated in the centre of the room. The desk can be dismantled into three sections for easy transport and access into the home or office.
This desk has been cleaned and French polished, by hand, to a professional standard, therefore the colour and patination is of an excellent standard.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms from the work place to the home office. This Victorian desk would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional. So, don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

Once you have purchased an item, we will contact you by email and/or telephone and provide you with a provisional delivery date, in order for you to confirm if it is suitable for you.

We will also provide you with our shippers’ contact details, in case you need to contact the driver on the day of delivery. It’s helpful if you can provide us with both the landline and mobile telephone number, in case the driver cannot reach you on one of the numbers on the day of delivery, they can contact you on your alternative number.
