  • Tony Purell,
    I have my writing desk ... Victorian circa 1890 walnut with red leather insert. AMAZING though i would have loved the keys to lock the drawers. delivered in perfect condition (well for 130 years old perfect). I only ask if Driscolls can fine me a small walnut chest of drawers to go with it! 5 or 10 stars all the way for me. Thank you so much.
  • Beautiful antique bureau,
    Dear JamesThe bureau has arrived and is very beautiful – I am delighted.Do you know anything of its history? It would be very interesting to know where it has been. (Don’t worry if not, but I do wonder who has sat where I am now, and hope they got as much pleasure out if their bureau as I do.) Thank you for arranging everything so well.Best wishesSueAntique bureau
  • Richard,
    James,I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how pleased we are with the desk we bought from you. It is absolutely stunning and a great addition to our home.I also had a desk chair made for it and it has been polished to match the colour of the walnut, with an olive green leather seat and back. The pair look stunning together.I will keep an eye out on your website for some other things.Thanks again!Kind regardsRichard
