Product Description

Perfect to use as a large desk in any room, this ball and claw foot writing desk is as handsome as they come. It features a leather writing surface and three drawers for storage.

Antique Writing Table

The original desk was made in England sometime around the year 1960. Recently, an English craftsman has restored the piece by re-leathering the top, polishing the wood, adding wire grommets, and converting the middle drawer to a drop front drawer.
The wood is burled walnut which has a lovely grain and great color. Some of the more striking features of this desk include the swan neck drop brass handles and the shaped legs which end in ball and claw feet. The top is mostly covered in a great looking black leather. Leather is the ideal writing surface, far superior to other materials. This leather has been gold tooled around the edges. Finally, this ball and claw foot writing desk has a fully finished back. Having a fully finished back is a really important feature because you are not forced to place the desk up against a wall. This opens up a whole slew of decorating options.
Finally, the two drawers on either side are large drawers that would work nicely as file drawers. They are also quite deep (from front to back) allowing you to store plenty in them!


This writing desk is in excellent condition. The drawers work easily. The left and right drawers lock and a single key is included. It is a very sturdy and structurally sound desk that will serve for many years to come.
The height from the floor to the bottom of the desk is 25.75″. The knee hole width below the decorative carvings is 22.5″.
