Product Description

The Victorian period of furniture making in England extended from 1837-1901 and created some lovely furniture pieces such as this antique Victorian writing desk. Made from a lovely mahogany wood and covered with a fine, green leather writing surface, this desk is quite the find!

Antique Victorian Writing Desk

Two easily opening drawers provide some storage in this desk. They are constructed with hand cut dovetails which are a sign of authenticity and quality. Each drawer features two subtle wooden handles. A unique and beautiful trestle-like base adds beauty and stability to this antique Victorian writing desk. Four flat feet provide support to the trestles. Also, a stretcher connects the two trestles and adds stability. Finally, small finials under each corner provide a nice added touch.


This desk was originally made in England around 1900 and is rated in good condition. It is sturdy and stable. The leather exhibits minor wear marks and does not appear to be original to the piece. Numerous minor scratches and marks can be found on the top. None of these are more than cosmetic and to most people they serve to add character to the antique writing desk. Also, the front left corner appears to have had something spilled on it at some point that lightened the finish in that area. Otherwise this desk is a great looking and functional piece that is ready to be used immediately.
The height from the floor to the bottom of the desk measures 23″.
