Product Description

An antique escritoire is defined as a small desk with drawers and compartments that is hidden with a hinged door on a chest or plain stand. This mahogany drop down desk is exactly that having a beautiful, leather-ed drop down writing surface and multiple cubbies and drawers.

Antique Escritoire

Originally made in England around 1960, this antique escritoire was constructed from a fine selection of flame mahogany wood. The drop down desk section is attached to a four drawer chest section. This entire unit is one piece, but its smaller size makes it easy to maneuver. The drop down desk locks with a key as well as the small interior door. The writing surface is a fine antique tan leather. Thankfully, the leather remains in good condition with only a few very light marks. The writing surface of the desk measures 22.75″ wide x 19.75″ deep and is 30.25″ off the ground. The interior consists of three drawers, four cubbies, and one locking door.

Drop Down Desk

You will notice that the gorgeous flame mahogany wood is detailed with a mahogany cross band and satinwood string inlay on all of the drawers and the fall. All of the drawers open and close smoothly. In addition, each drawer was carefully constructed with dovetailed joints. These joints are the strongest kind of drawer joint and show the attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship that went into this antique escritoire. The pulls are a round brass ring drop pull. The entire piece sits on strong bracket feet which serve to elevate the escritoire and keep it light and airy.
Overall, the condition remains very good on this piece. The feet and bottom molding exhibit a few small dings and chips. Also, the entire piece has slight distressing marks that appear to have been intentional. Whoever made this antique escritoire did an amazing job!
