This mahogany Gillows style writing desk was recently bench-made in England as a reproduction of a Georgian period antique. Every aspect of this writing desk is of the absolute highest quality. The mahogany looks fantastic, with a rich complexion and a very pronounced grain. Fine satinwood inlays adorn the drawer fronts, sides, desktop edges, and back. The two drawers come equipped with solid brass swan neck pulls and escutcheons; they also feature hand-cut dovetailed joints. Both drawers lock with an included key. The top of this desk is inlaid with a writing surface of fine brown leather bordered with embossing and hand-worked gold tooling. This desk sits on turned, fluted legs that complement the rounded corners and are also quite sturdy. Because this desk is brand new and handmade, it will last for many decades to come, so this piece is not just a promising addition to your collection, but a worthwhile investment!
