There are around 50-100 high definition super-sized pictures at the bottom of this page. A very well made late 18. Century desk, I have never seen another double sided piece from this era, it is sublime, the front has nine traditional drawers, the back two cupboards and three drawers, the concept was of course for two people to share the same desk, either in a legal context or for the boss and their assistant. The desk comes complete with all original Lion head handles and brown leather top which is distressed in the middle.
We have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, as mentioned the desk leather has wear, there is an old repair to one of the cupboard hinges, various signs of patina from 240+ plus years of use, everything functions as it should. I can have the desk fully restored to include sorting out the old repair, a new leather top or this leather top restored and hand dyed, the timber can all be washed back and French polished, for a price on any of the above please let me know, I have left the desk as it is because allot of collectors are looking for genuine age related patina, others are looking for fully restored. As things stand we have deep cleaned hand condition waxed and hand polished it from top to bottom. Legroom Height 57cm Width 66.5cm. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
