circa: 2000 width: 60 height: 30 length: 36 This antique style writing desk is English-made by hand from flame mahogany. Using the finest materials and methods available, every aspect speaks of the highest quality. Consider, for the instance, the brilliant flame mahogany, with a rich complexion and a striking grain--the wood is not only a fine selection but is treated to an elaborate finishing process that begins with optional hand distressing and ends in a fine French polish of wax. The solid brass pulls, which are also made in England, contrast beautifully with the flame mahogany, as does the mahogany crossbanding around the desktop. The square, tapered legs are as sturdy as they are elegant, while each locking drawer features hand-cut dovetails. Of course, because this writing desk is handmade, it is not only beautiful but incredibly sturdy and durable, so it should continue to grow more beautiful with time, eventually becoming an antique itself!
