A very good quality late 19th century mahogany kidney
shaped writing desk having attractive replaced gilt tooled
leather inset top over nine drawers with original brass handles
and crossbanded inlay decoration raised on elegant square
tapering legs with original brass castors

( This lovely quality and functional desk has real elegance and class
and would add to absolutely any room it is set in. Kidney Shaped desks
are always very popular as they have such elegance and can stand
centrally, but also against a wall if absolutely necessary. Another thing
which people like about them is that everything is within reach and when
sat right at it you can almost feel like you are enclosed within a cockpit
whilst knuckling down to work. The leather on this desk is a modern
replacement as you would expect for something that has been being used
throughout its life, but both the handles and castors are original which is
a nice tough. The overall quality is very good with solid mahogany drawer
linings in place which suggest it would have been made in a pretty high end
workshop of the time as not many of the workshops could afford to buy
solid mahogany and then use it as an unseen secondary timber. As a result of
course the drawers still run beautifully and are as absolutely fit for purpose
as the rest of this incredibly elegant, functional desk. )
