The desk incorporates a good quality full grain green inset leather with elegant gold tooling border, which is flanked by mahogany banding and a thumb moulded top. If you prefer a different colour leather, we can replace it with a colour of your choice for an additional £125. The desk comprises of a top section with two pedestals, all of which incorporate lovely flame mahogany veneers. There are 9 graduated working drawers to the front of the desk, with a large filing drawer at the bottom of one pedestal, all of which are decorated with cock-beaded fronts. The drawer sides are mahogany lined and constructed with dovetail joints, incorporating good quality metal swan neck handles with fretted oval escutcheons. The top three drawers incorporate working lever locks and keys.
The pedestals are raised on Georgian style bracket feet and are decorated with fine beading to the outsides of each pedestal. The desk is freestanding which means it can be situated in the centre of the room. The desk can be dismantled into three sections for easy transport and access into the home.
This desk features a warm mahogany colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a lovely mellow colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms from the work place to the home office. This item would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely piece of furniture.

If you prefer a different colour leather, we can replace it with a colour of your choice for an additional £125. All drawers run smoothly and close flush to the frame.
