Antique Style English Mahogany Writing Desk - For Sale
Antique Style English Mahogany Writing Desk
circa: 2000 width: 52.5 height: 32.5 length: 25 This traditional Georgian style mahogany writing desk was recently English-made as an antique reproduction. The design of this desk, simple and elegant, was perfected by the master craftsmen of the Georgian and Victorian periods; the result is a striking combination of beauty and utility that is all but absent in contemporary style furniture. Note, for example, the gorgeous mahogany grain and complexion, rich and lustrous due to a fine production process. An inlaid writing surface of fine brown leather bordered by Georgian style gold tooling provides an area for writing far superior to wood, metal or glass, a fact learned long ago through practical Georgian furniture craftsmanship. The three desk drawers offer plenty of storage space and feature dovetailed joints, while the square legs end in removable casters, and swan neck pulls contrast beautifully with the mahogany.
