Antique Painted Black Clerks Desk
This is a handsome antique writing desk which dates to the mid 19th century.
Made of pine and mixed woods it is a rustic piece which has had a very active life, when it came to us it needed a lot of work to get it looking how it looks today.
The desk is ideal for an office or study or perhaps for use as a 'checking in' desk in a cafe or restaurant. It has an evocative Gothic look which will suit a quirky antique setting.
The desk is set on tall turned legs and has a sloping lid which opens to reveal an arrangement of small drawers for storing stationery and correspondence.
Below the top section is a single wide drawer, finished with later turned wooden handles.
I have hand painted this piece in my own mix of black water based paint before distressing the paintwork for a gently aged look. The paintwork has been glazed for protection and has a nice aged looking sheen.
height to top-100cms
height to bottom of drawer-55.5cms
The desk is in solid structural condition with many marks of age and use.
It is generally very rustic and well aged!
