GEORGE III MAHOGANY AND LEATHER PEDESTAL DESK
England, circa early-to-mid 19th century
Item # 904EQX18 


A most attractive writing desk from the first half of the 19th century, it is a tidy and austere presentation with no excess embellishment, allowing the rich natural materials to remain at the forefront of the design.  

The mahogany chosen is quite excellent with wonderful swirls in the grains, the wood having bleached out to a subdued golden hue that is complimented nicely by the burnished brasses and the satinwood stringer inlays that frame the drawers and doors.

Surrounding the green gilt-tooled leather writing surface is mahogany feathered veneers.  The sitting side of the desk is lined with two broad horizontal drawers in the apron over three graduated drawers in either pedestal, all beautifully hand dovetailed and retaining original ring brasses.

The faux-side of the desk is designed to look like drawers, but conveniently features adjustable shelving behind the outward swinging doors in either pedestal.

An excellent piece for the study, but also a very practical piece for the working office, it is a classic strike point piece.

Measurements: 30 1/8" H x 48 3/4" W x 32 3/8" D

Condition Report:
Mahogany surface faded and somewhat inconsistent (likely sun exposure).  Some wear around edges of base, typical wear and discoloration to surfaces from age and use.  Some veneer losses/chips around edge of top.  Discolorations to early leather.  No key.  Gaps where corners of base molding meet up in a few spots from shrinkage.
