Antique Black Painted Writing Desk with Drawers
This is an elegant antique desk which dates to the late 1800s, a handsome Victorian Gothic piece which will suit an antique setting.
The desk is made of mahogany and mixed woods and is heavy and solid. It has a rectangular set on twin pedestals housing six graduated drawers, these surround a central drawer. The drawers have attractive turned mahogany handles and the pedestals are set on deep base plinths.
I have hand painted the desk in my own mix of black chalk based paint before distressing the finish for an aged look and then waxing the paintwork for protection.
The paintwork is solid colour and the finish is smooth with a nice sheen.
The desk is in good structural condition with various cosmetic marks of age and use.
The drawer interiors are clean with some small ink stains and shrinkage cracks to the bases.
The desk top has quite a lot of shallow dents and scratches below the painted surface.
kneehole space measures-53cms high x 34cms wide at the base
The measurements are taken at the widest points.
