This English mahogany writing desk was made during the Edwardian period around the year 1910. It features five drawers that extend all the way to the back of the desk making the drawers quite large and spacious. As with many Edwardian pieces, the mahogany of this writing desk is inlaid with satinwood around the top and drawer fronts. Finally string inlay on the front of the front legs finishes off the look.
Antique Edwardian Writing Desk
The desk top has a newer brown leather surface. The brown leather is tooled in gold and makes a wonderful contrast to the mahogany wood. Leather makes a great writing surface and provides a warm charm to the piece. This leather is probably 10 years old and has sustained a few marks.
The depth of the bowed out front of the desk measures 25.75″ while the slightly narrower sides depth measures 23.5″.
Each drawer does open and close easily. Overall, this writing desk has many small distressing marks incurred throughout the years. Small dings and marks can be found throughout. A small piece of molding is missing from just right of the knee hole area. The legs seem to have the most of the small wear marks. Again, these are cosmetic only. All of these small marks lend the piece character, rather than detract from it.
The distance from the floor to the bottom of the desk is 23.5″ and the knee hole is 19″ wide at the widest point.
