This Fine Victorian Mahogany Double-sided Library Desk Bookcase of unusual design dates from circa 1860.

As can be seen from the photographs there is a kneehole to one side flanked by shallow bookshelves of adjustable height with hinged leather-faced dust covers. There are three drawers above, the middle of which is a shallow pull-out Secretaire with capstan hinges.
At opposing ends of the Desk there are three, large, graduated, functioning drawers.
The other side of the Desk is fitted with adjustable bookshelves with hinged leather-faced covers. On this side the two top end drawers are usable, the middle one is a dummy.
The Desk is decorated using six turned columns and panelled drawer fronts and ends. The leather on the top of the Desk is naturally aged and mellow.
The Desk is made in two sections, the top being removable.
The overall condition of the Deak is good. Depending upon preference it could do with either a wax or a polish and very minor repairs. All locks appear to be original.
We are a family business of three generations going back to the 1920s. Customer satisfaction is what we strive for.
