Description

A small rare English early 18th century walnut kneehole desk. George II period, circa 1735.
This fine Georgian walnut kneehole desk is of a very rare form.
The hinged fold-over moulded bachelorís 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 crossbanded in fine, well-figured and patinated walnut of superb colour, with narrow ebony lines.
All mounts, locks and bracket feet are original.
Graduated cockbeaded short drawers surround a central recessed cupboard.
Nb. This small antique kneehole 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.
Maybe be used as a dressing table or compact writing desk.
For a discerning collector.
