A Gothic Revival Oak Desk
Made of solid oak, this Gothic Revival desk has three drawers and two cupboards with finely crafted tracery ornamentation to the front. The wooden drawer knobs are delicately octagonal in shape. The drawers and the cupboards have their original keys and the cupboard doors open to reveal a shelf on one side and a bank of three drawers on the other. It has moulded edges to the top and stands on a plinth base.
It measures 117cm wide, 80cm high and 50.5cm deep. The kneehole is 36cm wide and 62.5cm high.
It is in good, original condition with some old marks and wear to the top. An area of moulding to one corner, above the cupboard and below the drawer, is a replacement and there is an old stain to one side (see photograph). It is missing what may have been a small upstand that was screwed into the back but never rested on the top.
