A 1950s Walnut Desk by Reynolds of Ludlow
The simple design of this English walnut desk is brought to life by beautiful matching veneers to the slope and the drawer fronts. It has two drawers beneath a fitted interior and rounded, tapering legs of solid walnut. The handles are of turned wood.
On the back it bears the Utility mark, dating it to c.1950, and it is a fine example of the kind of design and craftsmanship that companies such as Reynolds of Ludlow could achieve in difficult post-war conditions. It has no maker's label but an identical desk is featured and attributed on p.156 of David Joel's 'The Adventure of British Furniture' (1953).
92cm wide, 100cm high and 56.5cm deep.
In very good, original condition. One rear leg has had woodworm which has now been treated and is not unsightly.
