This very decorative small antique burr elm and laburnum oyster cross banded desk was made in the early 18th century and has subsequently been restored.
The original cabinet maker has created a desirable desk of a size and proportions which are rarely found.
It was made to the highest standards and incorporates a number of desirable features.
The carcass and drawer linings are made of oak. This is a very stable timber for the decorative veneers.
The desk has a fold over top which is supported by pull out lopers. The top has re entrant corners and is cross banded in oyster veneered laburnum and feather banded.
There are 2 long drawers, smaller drawers beside a recessed cupboard all of which have yew cross banding, feather banding and cock beading.
The brass handles, locks and escutcheons are old replacements similar to those which would have been originaly found on the desk.
The base if the desk has a cross grain moulding and it stands on bracket feet.
The desk is in good condition and is a very decorative item of antique furniture which because of its small size could be used in many situations.
