A wonderful antique Victorian mahogany leather top knee hole desk. This was made in England, it dates from around 1860-1880.
It is of superb quality and is a lovely size. This is all one piece with a built in knee hole giving rise to the term ‘knee hole’ desk. The top is inset with a high quality leather writing surface, which is hand coloured and gold tooled around the edges. This sits on plinth bases, it is nicely finished on the rear with a paneled back, so this can be used as a free standing item. There are lots of generous drawers, all running smoothly with fine, hand cut dovetailed joints and beautifully turned mahogany handles.
We have had this recently re-polished, the condition is excellent for its age. The mahogany has a gorgeous colour tone and impressive grain patterns, there are various very small marks and signs of old wear remaining beneath the polish in places. Overall this has a stunning patina.
One very good feature, is the generous kneehole space, which is hard to find in a desk of these proportions.
