crossbanded top over nine superbly figured drawers
with later brass handles to front and three drawers over
panelled cupboard doors to reverse raised on
original plinth base

Kneehole dimensions: Height 25in x width 21in

(Desks are functional pieces of furniture and generally heavily
used throughout the years, hence why not many examples from
the 18th century have survived in any kind of sensible condition.
This particular example has beautifully figured drawers and
cupboard doors and the replacement brass handles have clearly
been in place for some time, are of the style it would originally
have had and fit exceptionally well with the piece. The desk is
also a good functional size for the modern home or office and
not overpoweringly big like a lot that come to market. Also it
handily breaks down into 3 sections, which many 18th century
examples don’t, making it easy to get into even the most
challenging of environments).
