A handsome and fine quality George III period mahogany kneehole desk or dressing table, of particularly good weight of timber and original colour and patina. The rectangular top has an ogee mould to the edge, above a pull-out brushing slide and full width drawer, above a knee-hole with recessed cupboard and hidden frieze drawer, flanked by three graduated drawers to either side. The desk is raised on club bracket feet. All drawers are oak lined and feature original brass ‘swan neck’ handles.

Condition and Details of Restoration:
This item is in original structural condition and is completely sound. The polish has been revived, by our own craftsmen, by hand in the traditional manner. There are some old marks, knocks, and scuffs underneath the polish, as might be expected on a desk of this age, but nothing too major. There are old repairs to a crack in the timber to each end (sound and not moving).
