A handsome and superior quality late Victorian mahogany pedestal desk, having a top with an inset leather scriber with gilt tooling, raised on two pedestals with graduating drawers with attractive ‘fiddle back’ grain and brass handles, and raised on plinth bases. The top lifts off the pedestals for ease of transport.

Condition and Details of Restoration:
This item is in original structural condition and is completely sound. The polish has been re-finished, 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 major. The leather, though unlikely to be original, has been in use for some time and bears the marks of use. In our opinion, the photographs are representative.
