This handsome desk is largely in the traditional manner, with a central long drawer and two drawers either side.
However it is unusual in having a cupboard to one side of the front, and three graduated drawers to the other side.
This is a substantial piece which offers plenty of storage, with an additional cupboard to one of the sides.
It has lovely patina and is panelled throughout, resting on a plinth base. Reeded border to the main body.
Topped with a red leather skiver, which features a decorative border.
Pedestal desks became a stalwart in libraries during the 19th and 20th Centuries, first coming to England in the 18th Century.
