A Fine Quality Mid 19th Century Burr Walnut Pedestal 
Desk Of Unusually Small Proportions Having Replaced
Gilt Tooled Leather To Crossbanded Top Above Nine 
Well Figured Drawers Raised On Original Plinth Base

(With it's beautiful burr walnut veneers, excellent quality
throughout, including mahogany drawer linings, and its 
unusually small but practical size this desk is perfect for 
such a huge variety of settings. 19th century desks can 
vary wildly in styles, sizes, finishes and quality and this is 
right up there in the top bracket of all concerned. The brass
handles are relatively recent replacements but sit happily and
work extremely well in situ. The desk does of course come apart
into three sections (top and two pedestals) for both ease of 
transport and getting into tight spots in small houses.)
