A very fine quality mid 19th century burr walnut pedestal desk of unusual diminutive proportions.

Having attractive replacement gilt tooled leather inset top over nine drawers with replacement brass handles and well figured panels to reverse. Raised on original plinth base.

Sporting superbly attractive and extremely well figured burr walnut veneers throughout this small 19th Century desk is exceptional quality throughout with the inclusion of mahogany internal drawer linings, allowing those drawers to operate as smoothly as the day they were made.

The small but practical size is a breath of fresh air for those with little available floor space to set up a working from home environment, yet somehow it still manages to be big enough and offers enough storage for practical day to day working.

19th Century pedestal desks vary wildly in style, shape, size, finish and quality, but this example is right at the top of the tree in that respect and one of the nicest of its type which we have owned for some time.

The brass handles are relatively recent replacements, but sit most happily and of course importantly work extremely well.

The desk does come into three pieces for ease of transportation as is common for this period and that of course makes it even easier to get into absolutely any location around the home which the purchaser desires.

Circa 1860.

Height 29.5in
Width 48in.
Depth 23in.
