This truly impressive rare rosewood desk is a very stylish stylish piece, it offers many stunning features such as its green tooled leather top, beautiful rosewood veneers & inlaid marquetry to the front drawers to name a few, whilst being visually appealing this is a very useful piece having 9x drawers in total, each drawer opens & closes with a nice easy action & all drawers stop where they are suposed to, it is offered here in very good original & complete condition & benefits from having been recently cleaned & wax polished, ready to stand in your room, office or study, it dates from circa 1880 & is of very good large proportions, the only note worth mentioning is that one handle drop is slightly different to the others but is hardly noticeable, the back plate on this handle matches the rest of them please refer to photos. This is an absolutely stunning piece which was clearly built to last by a very talented cabinet maker back in the 19th century, a time were modern day power tools were not available, it would have taken the cabinet maker a substantial amount of time to make a piece of this superior quality & in reflection to today it would cost an absolute fortune if one were to be replicated if you could source the scarce timbers to actually make it. Please refer to photos above, please bare in mind that this desk is offered here in very good condition for its age but it is an antique over 140 years old it will have some minor signs of age related wear etc. Alternatively you would be more than welcome to collect. Various interesting new items listed.
