Description

This fine Georgian walnut kneehole desk is of a very rare form.
The hinged fold-over moulded ‘bachelor's' top is supported on twin lopers, opening to reveal numerous secret fitted drawers and pigeon holes, located within a well.
The whole beautifully veneered and cross-banded in fine figured and well patinated walnut of superb color, with narrow ebony lines.
Mounts, locks and bracket feet original.
Graduated cockbeaded short drawers surround a central recessed cupboard.
Nb.This small antique kneehole desk was probably made to a special estate order. All lined in best quality English oak. An additional rarely encountered feature - probably unique - is a steel lever concealed beneath the kneehole which releases yet another secret compartment within the cupboard recess.
For a discerning collector.
Est. 1957
