Hand-crafted in England by a third-generation cabinetmaker, this remarkably beautiful walnut pedestal desk offers a supreme combination of beauty and function. It is fitted with an assortment of storage areas with an optional modesty panel and green leather paneling.
Convenient pedestal desk design
Beginning with the pedestal design itself, this desk offers a suite of convenient options. Like all desks of its kind, the desktop on this piece simply sits on top of the pedestals, fitting snugly around a border of square blocks. This makes the desk easy to set up and transport for two able-bodied people. Three standard drawers, a keyboard drawer, a file drawer that fits legal- and letter-sized files, and a computer cabinet provide a great deal of storage space. All of them lock with an accompanying set of skeleton keys. With such convenience it is little wonder that the design of walnut pedestal desks like this one has remained so constant over the centuries.
Classic antique style
As beautiful as it is useful, this desk is crafted with a remarkable selection of burl walnut. World-renowned for its distinctive swirling grain and rich complexion, the wood does not disappoint! Walnut crossbanding adorns the drawer and cabinet fronts as well, providing elegant contrast. A trio of dark green leather panels, each bordered by hand-worked gold tooling, has been inlaid into the desktop. Solid brass swan neck pulls and escutcheons adorn the face of the desk. Finally, the ogee feet are as attractive as they are sturdy. This Georgian antique style is ideal for any period furniture collection.
Heirloom quality craftsmanship
This walnut pedestal desk is not simply a remarkable example of English craftsmanship, it is a true heirloom quality piece. Far superior to carelessly made or mass-manufactured products, every detail was placed in this desk by expert hands. From the solid wood structure, to the thick burl walnut veneers, to even the hardware itself–which was forged in England from solid brass–every material was superbly chosen and refined. Such hand-crafted items are sure to last for many decades to come, so they are every bit an investment as much as they are exquisite museum-quality pieces. This walnut pedestal desk is sure to serve its owner well and be passed down through the generations!
The knee hole measures 26” wide except at the bottom between the feet which is 22.5”. The height from the floor to the bottom of the desk is 25.75”.
