FINE REGENCY MAHOGANY LEATHER TOP WRITING TABLE
England, c. 1815-30
Item # 709PHX29Z 


A very finely crafted writing table exemplifies the “neat and tidy” approach craftsmen brought to their work in England during the period.  Everything about the case is well planned out and executed: in the drawers, each hand cut dovetails is inordinately precise, the drawer bottoms with chamfered edges set in grooves to allow shrinkage and expansion without risk of damage; the underside of the case shows a symmetrical mixture of long-pin dovetails, tenons and tongue-in-groove joinery for longevity without the need for mechanical fasteners.  The top of the desk is affixed with cut screws around the underside, the writing area finished in a beautiful early caramel gilt tooled leather.  Three drawers bring tasteful depth and proportion to the case, as well as deep storage; the center drawer is formed of a solid plank of mahogany in concavity that conforms with the center of the desk.  This hollow allows an upholstered side chair to come that much closer to the desk when tucked away, almost disappearing against the case.  Thin reeding frames every edge, matching the crisp and bold reeding along the tapered legs, each terminating in original brass castors.  The desk retains its’ original stamped Lion head pulls, locks and key.  An excellent example: of fine design, untouched in originality and of remarkable quality.
