A fine quality mid 19th century burr walnut Pedestal Desk of diminutive proportions.
Having attractive replaced gilt tooled leather inset top over nine drawers with replaced brass handles raised on original plinth base.
With superb and attractive 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 often vary wildly in styles, sizes, finishes and quality and this is right up there in the top bracket of all the above.
The brass handles are relatively recent replacements but sit most 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.
