This antique desk on legs is perfect for both formal and less formal office settings or a library. It is chock full of character and charm as well as functional and useful! Originally made in England around the year 1890, it is a beautiful piece that is sure to go quickly given how hard antique desks are to find.
Stunning and Charming Mahogany Wood
The wood used to create this beautiful piece is mahogany. Over the last almost 130 years the wood has developed a lovely patina and color. Brass escutcheons were used on each drawer as well, a wonderful match the style of this antique desk on legs. While both drawers retain locks, we do not have a working key. One key is included that works well as a handle for the drawers.
The top is covered in a beautiful green leather. Leather makes a wonderful writing surface, far superior to other materials. This leather appears to have been recently replaced and is in impeccable condition. The edges of the leather are tooled in gold and it looks great with the dark mahogany wood. Finished sides and back complete the piece. The fully finished back can be hard to find and allows you complete flexibility when placing the desk in a room.
Each of the finely turned and fluted legs sits on brass casters that appear recently replaced. This is good as casters from the Victorian era tend to have already worn past their useful life.
Antique Desk on Legs Condition
The condition of this piece is very good. It is sturdy and will obviously last for many decades to come. The mahogany is distressed with small marks that you would expect from something that has been used over time that can be found on all its surfaces. None of these marks detract from the piece and really are the character marks that reproduction pieces attempt to duplicate. Finally, the left drawer has a small chip on the bottom right corner. This antique desk on legs is in one piece and does not break down. Also, the height from the floor to the bottom of the desk is 23″.
