English Writing Desk
This exceptionally decorative “Lady Writing Desk” is executed in Mahogany, intriguing with a variety of details and secret drawers, raised on four cabriole legs, terminating in ball and claws feet.
The two large main drawers are embellished with “swan neck” handles in yellow metal. The top is newly fitted with Alcantara in our workshop. The surrounding, decorative frieze is finely carved in wave shapes and perfectly adjusted to the center and corner forms of the desk.
The highly decorative upper part comes with several small drawers and compartments, surmounted by a drawer in marquee shape, centered by a small tabernacle with another secret, shell shaped drawer below. Two additional small drawers are hiding further secret drawers deeper down.
A beautifully made, English piece of furniture, executed with traditional craftsmanship skills of the first half of the 20th century.
