About this item

A vintage serpentine fronted desk, with fitted two-door cabinet. Circa mid - late 20th century.

The desk has seven drawers and is in lovely clean condition for its age. It has been cleaned and waxed polished. There are a few light marks to the top consistent with age, and some water marks to the front to note.

A very well made piece of furniture, the desk has wonderful fine hand-carved animal decoration, standing on claw and ball cabriole legs. It is made in solid figured hardwood closely resembling walnut in colour and grain.

The drawers have solid sides and backs with dovetail construction, there are a few marks within some of the drawers.

Sturdy in structure with no loose joints, the desk is free from any damage or woodworm. The right hand side back cabriole leg has a slightly proud piece of wood on the claw.

There are two later metal fittings to the back holding the top cabinet to the desk.

Additional dimensions information:

(the desk top is 75.5cm high) There is 57cm height for legroom and 46cm width. When the back lids are open it is 122cm high. There is 41cm in depth for work space.
