Victorian Mahogany Cylinder Top Escritoire(Ref: 340)
Victorian Mahogany Cylinder top Escritoire with a large cupboard under, 2 doors with a lock and key and a shelf midway so lots of storage.
The free running roll top enclosing a partially leathered pull out writing slide with a hinged writing slope. It features 8 beautiful pigeon holes and 4 drawers under,
There are a further 4 faux drawers under.
The side panels of leather are delightfully worn and original. There is no leather remaining on the central writing slope. We felt it was better left to the new owner to decide whether to replace all the leather or restore and match. We can recommend someone if you wish.
I have photographed the wear and tear on this desk. The wood has split slightly on the roll top and there is a split to the side/corner. This looks worse than it is. While there is a split it is to no detriment of the structure. It is strong and steadfast.
We have reflected the condition in the price.
