This vintage writing desk has an interesting story. Crafted by our fourth generation furniture maker in the year 2007, a family in England purchased the desk. Recently, after moving, they offered the desk back to the furniture maker who has sent it to us in the US.
Burled Walnut Wood
By selecting gorgeous burled walnut the maker crafted a visually stunning piece of furniture here. Full of burls and knots, the wood varies in color slightly but has an overall dark honey look to it. A herringbone inlay sets off the edge of the top and three drawers. Also, stunning Hepplewhite style plate back pulls add elegance to the drawers.
An elegant black leather writing panel adorns most of the top of the desk. This dark contrast to the lighter wood provides a beautiful look that should fit well into any room. Also, the fully finished back means this vintage writing desk can be placed anywhere to fit your needs both now and in the future.
Heavily Distressed Vintage Writing Desk
When created, this desk went through an extensive distressing process. This involves making marks to the wood with metal and iron. The resulting marks give the wood an aged appearance and give the desk depth and character. This particular desk was heavily distressed leaving numerous distressing marks throughout the wood.
Being so heavily distressed when it was created, it is tough to tell if any of the marks are wear or intentional. The only obvious mark is a small scratch on the front left corner of the top. The leather has some minor marks here and there from use. However, the leather still has a very clean look and is ready to serve for decades to come.
The distance from the floor to the bottom of this vintage writing desk measures 24″.
