This is a very nice example of an antique writing table which has been superbly made from top quality figured walnut. It has been made, in the Victorian manner, and we have dated it to around 1900 which was almost at the end of Queen Victoria’s reign as she passed away in 1901.
We are delighted to offer this wonderful piece of furniture, which is in excellent condition. It has been superbly crafted from a particularly beautiful batch of walnut with very distinctive figuring. When looking at this fine desk it is clear as to why walnut has been used as a premier wood for furniture making for centuries due to its durability and also its beauty. Figured Walnut and Burr Walnut (also known as Burl Walnut) are considered the most attractive types of walnut. Using walnut veneers takes a great deal of skill in order to join, match and blend them ensuring a balanced finish.

The desk also has the benefit of being fitted with a striking hand tooled and gilded brown leather writing surface on top.

Another particular feature of this lovely desk are the delightful hand carved barley twist legs which as an added bonus still stand on the original brass and porcelain castors to make moving the desk around an easy task.

The desk is also fitted with decorative brass handles which add a distinct element of style to this lovely piece.

For storage, the desk features three ample sized drawers which also go to make it practical for use as a desk as well as a table. For the ultimate in flexibility the Victorian writing table is finished on all sides so that it can be placed anywhere in a room and not necessarily against a wall, making it suitable for any location.

Condition:
We can confirm that this antique walnut desk is in excellent condition but we suggest that you confirm this for yourself through the photos.
