GEORGE IV MAHOGANY AND LEATHER TOP WRITING TABLE
England, circa 1830-40
Item # 904LYP13P 


Of an attractive Neoclassical form, this writing table is a product of the George IV period in England during the second quarter of the 19th century.  Utilizing vibrant mahogany veneers around the top of the desk, the highlight is this beautiful caramel-brown leather writing surface with a toothed edge and gilt tooling around the edges. 

A pair of drawers on one side open easily with a pair of stamped brass knobs, these mirrored perfectly on the opposing side with faux-drawers and the same original knobs.  Both drawers are crisply hand-dovetailed in the oak secondary woods. 

The underside of the desk shows the same careful attentions to detail with finger joints and long thin dovetails locking each corner together with puzzle-like precision.  A pair of rectangular mahogany columns raise the desk with beautifully detailed scrolled returns with relief carvings of acanthus.  Strength is brought to the form through the thick solid mahogany turned stretcher between the columns..  The desk is raised over simple bun feet.

Note the repeating-beading motif used to finish most important edges, including the bottom of the apron (one small piece missing), around the columns and finishing the footings.  An all-around fine and striking writing table for the Classical library and office.

Measurements: 28 7/8" H x 48" W x 25 3/8" D

Condition Report:
Missing some beading along the lower edge of the apron on one side; cracking/scars/scuffs to surfaces throughout; some blemishes around keyholes; some color variation; small patch above one bun foot; wear to feet; no key; early leather top with nice patina, wear and minor scars; sturdy and stable.
