Antique Black Painted Writing Desk with Drawers
This is an attractive antique writing desk which dates to the early 1900s.
Made of mahogany and mixed woods it is useful and practical, an evocative Gothic looking piece which is ideal for use in an office or study.
The front of the desk is fitted with two wide drawers and two small cupboards which are finished with attractive Art Nouveau style drop handles handles.
The desk is set on tapered block legs which are finished with later castors.
I have hand painted the desk in my own mix of black water based paint before distressing the paintwork and then waxing the finish for protection. The paintwork is solid colour and has a good sheen.
This table is generally in solid structural condition with many marks to the wood and a few repairs here and there.
The table top is well aged and has a couple of small areas of damage, one to the front right hand corner, the other to the left hand front edge.
One of the legs has been repaired near the bottom and one has a small chink of wood missing.
Basically it is well aged and full of character.
