Antique Edwardian Mahogany Davenport Desk.
A rare Edwardian Davenport
We are delighted to offer for sale this excellent condition rare Edwardian (circa 1900) Mahogany Davenport desk,
ideal for any period property. This Davenport features a lovely deep rich Mahogany colour which is contrasted by its fantastic polished brass gallery and handles. The ornate desk benefits from floral carvings and detailings and typical Edwardian moulded edges. The kneehole has ornate deep relief carving of a floral theme which is framed by a double moulding. The desk also stands on turned feet complete with its original brown porcelain castor wheels making it easy to move between rooms.
This very usable and compact desk has all working locks with 1 key per lock making this desk secure and private. The Davenport also features a lift up stationary compartment, complete with its internal removable divisions, original ink well and even has lift up secret compartments underneath the removable divisions. The sloping gold tooled green leather (original) covered writing surface conceals a fitted well completed with 2 drawers and a brass stay. The desk also has 4 deep lockable drawers (with 1 key for all) on the right side and dummy drawer fronts on the left side.
This very versatile, functional writing desk is well suited to laptop use as it has a lift up lid with a lockable storage compartment to store the laptop and a leather skiver slope to aid writing or even typing on as the slope is a more comfortable position to type. The desk is also polished on the back enabling this desk to look at home and elegant placed almost anywhere in a room.
We have sympathetically restored this item maintaining original patina by just carefully waxing this item to enhance the French polished surface and preserve it for many years to come.
Please note; This item is in great condition for its age as shown by the photographs, however, being an antique item of this age there may be minor blemishes here and there which we feel adds to its originality and heritage of the piece.
