Here we have a really amazing Victorian carved antique writing desk done in oak. It is an English antique that was originally made around 1890 featuring barley twist legs and stretcher.
Stunning and Functional
It is hard to believe all of the wonderful carved features in this writing desk. Each of the four sides is meticulously carved to great detail. These carvings are the most prominent feature of the desk. The next thing your eye is drawn to are the barley twist turned legs and stretcher. Using a stretcher between the legs allows the heavy desk to remain sturdy even after all these years.
The front of the desk has a single drawer. A carved lion head or green mask makes up the center drawer pull. This drawer is fashioned with hand cut dovetails. Also, it runs on wooden runners.
Carved Antique Writing Desk Condition
This antique writing desk remains in good condition. It stands sturdy and strong. The piece has a small number of small cosmetic age separations, common in solid wood pieces. Also, a variety of minor wear marks consistent with age and use are present here and there. These tend to give the piece a little character. Inside the drawer, some very small age separations have occurred between the bottom boards. The top also has some slight shrinkage gaps around the edge. Finally, there are some repairs to the carving on the back right corner of the desk. Otherwise this desk has stood the test of time remarkably well and would go great in a variety of surroundings.
The distance from the floor to the bottom of the desk measures 22.75″.
