A fine and extremely rare Queen Anne walnut and feather kneehole desk of unusual form, retaining fine original colour and patina. The rectangular top with applied moulded front edge and quartered veneered top and feather and cross banded perimeter, opening to provide a large working surface supported by retractable side lopers. A long top drawer sits above a central kneehole recess, border by three short drawers either side all fitted with engraved brass escutcheon handles, with a cupboard compartment in the kneehole. The desk is supported on unusual and probably original walnut Braganza shaped feet. A highly collectable piece.

Mr J L Rose was an ardent collector in the sixties, regularly frequenting fairs like Grosvenor House where he was a good customer of Charles Lumb & Sons of Harrogate who exhibited at the fair at this time. We are delighted to be able to offer several notable pieces from his collection.
Excellent. Possible minor old restorations, waxing. Brassware and feet believed to be original.
