About this item

A beautiful large writing desk made from nanmu - a precious wood that is unique to China and South Asia, and was historically used for boat building, architectural woodworking, furniture and sculptural carving. The style of this piece has been heavily infenced by western design with its bottom latticed stretcher, adding an attractive decorative element to the desk along with the pretty scrolled carvings.

It originates from Shanxi, circa 1860, where it would have been used by one of the members of China's scholarly classes in Beijing for writing and study.

Use today in a home office with plenty of storage for stationery and papers or as an attractive statement piece in a living room.
