A Rare & Unusual Victorian Burr-walnut Davenport Desk

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Mersham Manor Antiques

Description

-Welcome to Mersham Manor Antiques-
A most unusual Victorian walnut davenport, of excellent quality.
c1860.
The davenport has two different desk types. The sloping green leather top, has a hinged stationary compartment to the back. This section can be used at standing height.
The sloping lid then lifts to reveal a large storage well. This well can then be lifted further, to reveal a second desk with matching green leather, having storage to the back and three small mahogany drawers, with turned bone handles.
To the base front are double doors which open to reveal a large cabinet, which can also be opened at the back.
The design of this davenport is one I have never encountered before, so I believe it to be extremely rare, and probably bespoke made at the time.
The walnut has wonderful rich figuring and a good colour and patina.
Standing on the original castors.
In excellent antique condition, with general expected signs of age and use. Fittings to the cabinet may have been removed, as there are marks to where possibly compartments were.

Very solid sturdy and strong.

The dimensions are.
Height at highest point-103cm. Height to the top of the back of the desk-100cm. Height to the underside of the kneehole area-70cm.
Width-61cm.
Depth-61cm.
