Large antique English oak leather top knee hole desk, imported from England and dating back to C.1880.
Make a statement with this fantastic desk. Not only does it look impressive, it is functional also and ready for every day use.
There are 2 drawer columns, one on each side, with 3 graduating drawers. The desk top sits snugly on top and has 3 drawers running across the front. All of the drawers have the original wooden knob handles and locks but no key.
The writing top features the original green leather with gold tooled edge. There is some minor wear to the leather but I would consider it to be in very good condition for its age.
It is finished on all sides so it could be free standing and not have to be up against a wall.
As you can see in the pictures, this desk has developed a wonderful golden oak patina along with many character forming, age appropriate flaws.
There is some splitting due to climate change causing movement in the wood. There is also an old repair to the center front of the right bottom drawer. There is some minor veneer loss, mainly to the base, along with general rustic wear throughout.
Over all this beautiful piece of old English furniture is in solid, sturdy condition.
Dimensions: width 54", depth 29 1/4", height 29 1/4", knee hole width 23", knee hole height 22 3/4".
