About this item

A very smart looking Vintage oak twin pedestal desk with the oval Ferodo Limited badge displayed proudly at the top of the front. Ferodo are synonymous with automobile braking technology having been established in 1897 and assisted Donald Campbell to halt when setting the land speed record in 1963 amongst its achievements. The desk by Simpoles of Manchester would have probably sat in the Wales factory and offices of Ferodo and dates to around 1940.

It’s a good looking beast with the usual lay out of a long top middle drawer flanked to the left with three drawers and to the right with a top drawer and a deep filing drawer. The two oak slides are also present. The desk is very much of the era with the curved original ribbed handles rather nice and the brass ends to the legs another decent feature.

Condition wise its good - the top has day to day marks but no deep scars, the drawer interiors are a little ink stained with the legs a little scuffed in places. All the drawers are working fine and the frame is firm with no wobbles. The desk also smells fine and looks pretty fresh for an old un!

Without doubt a great looking vintage desk.
