Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Dating from around 1890 in the Victorian period this walnut antique pedestal desk has rather unusual proportions, appearing more square than rectangular. The moulded top has rounded corners with a tooled leather writing insert. Two mahogany lined drawers sit below the top, spanning the width of the desk. Each pedestal has three graduating mahogany lined drawers all displaying the original silver gilt pierced brass handles. All the drawers have working locks, and are operated by a single key. The desk has an unusual locking mechanism for the drawers, they automatically lock when closed and must always be opened using the key. Definitely a desk for the security conscious! The desk stands on a plain plinth and splits into three sections for ease of removal. The walnut is a rich dark shade with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
