Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This true partners desk dates from the Victorian period, circa 1880, is constructed from oak and is of stunning quality. It is an extremely clean and tidy piece for its age and worth noting that to have a desk like this made today, to these exacting standards, you would be talking in the region of £10k! This original version is a bargain in comparison. It has a rectangular moulded top with a green tooled leather writing insert over a centrally located oak lined drawer above a large knee hole. The desk rests on two pedestals, on one side each pedestal has four oak lined drawers with original brass swan neck handles. On the opposite side each pedestal has a small oak lined drawer above a cupboard door displaying deep moulded edges and brass handles. The interior of each cupboard has a central removable shelf. The desk also has a key with one working lock and stands on a plain plinth. The piece originates from Scotland with evidence that it was actually made there, the locks on the desk being stamped 'J & T. Scott, Edinburgh'. This stunning antique desk is a real find, the quality of both materials used and craftsmanship evident in its making are hard to find in today's world. It also has the added benefit of the charm only associated with a piece of antiquity, something that can never be found from a new piece! It is a lovely rich warm shade of oak (very desirable in the current market) with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
