Vintage George 11 Style Burr and Figured Walnut Desk by Waring and Gillow
This very beautiful vintage desk we believe to be a bespoke item made to a very high standard
with walnut veneers chosen for their attractive figuring.
The desk has recently been professionally restored which included traditional french polishing,
waxing and a replacement black writing hide with gilt and blind tooling.
The writing leather is in three sections surrounded by bands of well-figured walnut
and the top has an intricate moulded edge.
The desk is fitted with five drawers around a knee-hole.
All drawers have mahogany linings with hand cut dovetail joints, moulded front edges with cross banding.
The handles are original pierced brass and the central drawer has a lock and key.
The sided and back of the desk have vignettes of book matched veneers and the desk stands on four carved cabriole legs.
The hand carving of the 'acanthus' at the knees and the ball and claw feet are of a very high quality.
This exceptionally attractive desk is a real stunner and would make a splendid focal point in any office, study or library.
It might also be used as a large dressing table.
