This burl walnut writing table was recently English-made by hand as a reproduction of a Georgian period antique. Every aspect of this writing table is of the absolute highest quality. For example, the burl walnut looks great, with a nice color and very pronounced grain that are accented by satinwood herringbone inlays. The three drawers come equipped with solid brass hardware, which compliments the walnut very nicely, and they also have dovetailed joints, which are a sign of excellent craftsmanship. The top of this writing table is inlaid with fine, brown leather bordered with decorative gold tooling. The leather really makes a great writing surface, far superior to wood, glass, metal, or plastic. The middle drawer can function as a regular drawer or a drop down keyboard drawer and there are two pull out writing slides above the left and right drawers. This superior antique style writing table would make a fine addition to any home or office.
