The desk comprises of a top section with two pedestals, all of which incorporate lovely yew wood veneers, on Georgian style bracket feet. There are 6 graduated working drawers in total, to the front of the desk and down the left pedestal. The right pedestal looks like a bank of drawers but is in fact a large cupboard, ideal for storing files. The drawer fonts are decorated with cock-beaded fronts, incorporating good quality metal swan neck handles with circular escutcheons. The drawer linings are constructed with dovetail joints. The top central drawer incorporates a working lever lock and key.
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. This is a one-piece desk, which cannot be dismantled.
The desk resonates a warm yew wood 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.
