A 1930s Oak Writing Table
Of unusually deep proportions, this desk is made of solid oak, lightly limed, and has two drawers with turned wooden handles. It is well detailed with bevelling to the top and bottom edges of the writing surface, which also has delicately canted corners. The legs are also bevelled on every edge and are united by three stretchers.
It is probably the work of John Stark, a prominent designer of the inter-war period whose work was retailed by John Lewis. A near identical writing table, of shallower depth, is illustrated on page 94 of 'Modern English Furniture' by J.C.Rogers, 1930.
It measures 76.5cm high, 91.5cm wide and 68cm deep.
It is in sound and solid condition with evidence of a life well lived. There are numerous old marks to the top, a little filler applied to the front of one drawer (see fourth image) and the handles appear to be a sympathetic replacement.
It is available to view in our Nottingham shop (please phone to make sure it is on display) or delivery can be arranged.
