Object Description

An Exceptional Quality Mid 19th Century, William IV Period, Rosewood Writing Table Having Blind Tooled Leather Inset To Crossbanded Top, Over Two Drawers With Original Turned Wooden Knobs Opposed By Two False Drawers, To Extremely Elegant Shallow Frieze, Raised On Reverse Tapered, Faceted, End Supports With Elegant Carved Scrolling Feet And Original Recessed Brass Castors.

Dating to the William IV period, which of course has a most distinctive style of its own sitting, despite not lasting very long between the late regency and victorian periods of english furniture making, this writing table has a lot of stand out features.

Firstly it is a great size. A little bigger than many, indeed big enough to use as a day to day desk for working at, whilst not being overpoweringly large like many earlier georgian writing tables which one may find.

It is also of exceptional quality. Clearly constructed in a top workshop it is constructed using high end, decorative rosewood veneers on the outside and a lot of mahogany as secondary timbers on the inside which is a great sign of quality. The entire table oozes class and sophistication in fact from top to bottom.

The original turned wooden knobs are a nice feature, as is the high support stretcher which helps with the aesthetics and of course the feet are wonderfully carved.

We actually think that due to its incredible elegance and beauty, this table would serve perfectly as a hall table, or centre type table in a living room or library, as well as its original purpose as a writing table or desk of course.

As with all items which we offer for sale this writing table has been attended to in our workshops by our highly skilled, trained antique furniture restorers and received a traditional, natural wax polish before being offered for sale, ensuring it is ready for immediate placement.
