This exquisite burl walnut writing desk is handmade in England by a third-generation cabinetmaker as a reproduction of a Georgian period antique. The burl walnut, which is treated to an elaborate finishing process that ends in a rich layer of hand-rubbed wax, displays the striking grain and complexion for which this variety of walnut is prized the world over. The brown leather, too, shows a rich complexion and grain that looks especially striking with the hand-worked gold tooling and embossing that trace the border of the leather. Walnut cross banding and solid brass hardware contrast beautifully with the burl walnut and leather, while the fluted corners and square tapered legs also look wonderful. The cross banding also mimics the burl grain colors of the main walnut wood.
This desk contains three drawers. The center drawer is a drop front keyboard drawer that can also be used as a regular pencil drawer. Conveniently, each drawer locks and three keys are included. The back features faux drawers. Because this writing desk is handmade using old-fashioned English techniques, it is as sturdy as it is beautiful, and will endure for generations to come!
The measurement from the floor to the bottom of the desk is 25″.
