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 rich colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and the years of care and cleaning it has received.
