Quality Victorian Walnut Antique Large Dickens Desk.
Dating from around 1890 this is a grand example of an antique walnut Dickens desk from the Victorian period. It also comes with an added bit of history, an original note from a mother to her son offering the desk as a gift to him. The desk itself has two upper banks of drawers, with brass handles, connected by an attractive turned gallery. With a tapering writing slope concealing a large storage compartment and several pigeon holes and three, original tooled, leather writing inserts, it offers substantial work and storage space. The lower section has two pedestals each with four graduating mahogany lined drawers with reeded edges and original brass handles. The antique desk stands on moulded plinths with brown porcelain castors. The back is finished so even though the design lends itself to be placed against a wall it also offers the option to act as a room divider and be placed in the centre of a room. The desk does split into three sections making transportation that bit easier and is a warm shade of walnut with a striking grain, good patina, is in very good condition and has been beautifully cleaned using a traditional form of wax finishing.
