Here is an example of a fine quality antique English Georgian style yew & leather 4ft 6”serpentine pedestal desk, circa late 20th Century, in good original condition. The desk incorporates top quality full grain green inset leather with elegant gold tooling border, which is flanked by yew wood veneer banding and a thumb moulded serpentine top, finished with chamfered corners. If you prefer different colour leather, we can replace it with a colour of your choice for an additional £125. The desk features fielded panels to the sides and boasts fabulous yew wood veneer to the top, front and sides.
There are 9 graduated working drawers to the front of the desk. All drawers are mahogany lined and constructed with dovetail joints, possessing good quality metal swan neck handles with fretted oval escutcheons. The top three drawers incorporate working lever locks and keys, with ornate key escutcheons.
The pedestals are decorated with beading to the sides and are raised on splayed bracket feet. 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 rich yew wood colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic 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.
This desk is in good original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges of the desktop frame, pedestals and plinths but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The desk incorporates a good quality full grain green leather, which is in good overall condition; however there are some indentations to the leather above the central drawer area (see photos). These indentations should not detract from the overall good condition and quality of this desk. If you prefer 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. The top 3 drawers feature the original working brass lever locks and original keys (the others were not constructed with locks). This desk is solid in joint and ready to use.
