A rare and superb quality George IV period Davenport desk in beautifully figured satinwood. This Davenport features a top which rotates through a quarter turn (to allow the user to sit at it), with a leather inset fall lifting to reveal a well with three interior pencil cedar lined drawers, and a sliding and hinged pen tray to the right hand side. Below this is a bank of four mahogany lined drawers, all with turned knob handles, raised on a plinth base with original brass castors.
Bears makers’ stamp to the top drawer, ‘Miles & Edwards, 134 Oxford St, London 40258’.
Circa 1820.
