This is a fine antique leather topped writing desk. It features a rich black leather top. Originally made in England around 1910 during the Edwardian period, this piece has made its way to our location in Atlanta, Georgia. This would make a fine writing desk in a home office, or even a small computer desk. Suitable for most any purpose this fine antique will make a great addition to any collection.
With five spacious drawers this desk offers plenty of storage for paperwork, stationary, or whatever else you might keep close at hand in your desk area. There is even a small cabinet in the right side. Each drawer is fitted with a beautiful brass handle and joined with dovetailed drawer joints. They open and close easily. A lovely thin ebony inlaid line borders each drawer providing some subtle contrast.
The soft leather makes for an ideal writing surface and has a lovely deep black finish that goes very well with the wood. The gold tooled border around the edges of the leather adds that extra level of quality and visual appeal to this desk. The leather is new and was likely replaced in England recently.
Writing Desk Construction
Constructed from gorgeous mahogany wood, this writing desk is sturdy and stable. Mahogany wood offers a fine grain and beautiful finished appearance. Coupled with the black leather this desk shows off just what wonderful combinations can be achieved.
This piece is in very good condition. There is a small age separation on the top (it’s on the right hand side). Both sides also exhibit an age separation. These are normal in older pieces and purely cosmetic. The normal amount of very small dings and marks can be found here and there as you expect from a piece that has eclipsed the century mark. The height from the floor to the bottom of the desk is 25″ and the knee hole width is 17.5″. Finally, the piece does appear to have been refinished at some point.
