Late Victorian Oak Roll Top Desk


A good quality late Victorian oak roll top desk. It has been in our workshop for a good tidy up, where most importantly the tambour has been re-backed (not an easy or inexpensive job). The desk has been well used and a letter of interest from the previous owner comes with it. The worst of the superficial damage is a chipped drawer (three down on the left) but most people would not notice it and overall the condition is solid and very good. The finish was totally rejuvenated whilst in the workshop and two of the knobs replaced on the interior drawers. This desk has fielded panels (bevelled) to the exterior always a sign of superior quality and expense when originally made. The sympathetic restoration gives this dark oak desk a really good, lived in but everything works exactly as it should. Tambour and central drawer locks working with keys, whilst the side drawers lock automatically when the tambour is closed.
