Antique Figured and Burr Walnut Davenport Desk

Date: circa 1850

Reference: SN578


This fine quality, beautifully figured antique walnut davenport desk was made by the Edinburgh firm of John Taylor and Sons. There is a makers stamp to the lining of the top side drawer, rather faint but legible:

The desk has the best quality figured and burr walnut veneers to all sides of the desk with a beautiful rich colour and sheen. It is a very stunning desk and retains its original dark green writing leather surface and has the original brass gallery surrounding the top shelf.
