Description

A good centre of the room writing table with dummy drawers at the back.
Original ormolu reeds on the corners and the middle section of the desk drawers and at the back.
I believe that this desk and drawer linings are made of harewood which is a rare wood and usually found in pieces of inlay and in typical marquetry furniture.
There is however an inlay 'splice' inserted on the top of the desk caused by shrinkage over a period of years. (see pictures)
The condition (apart from the above mentioned ) is excellent with the drawers running smoothly and a lovely patina to the wood.
Height 29.5 ins
Width 39 ins
Depth 21.5 ins
