Handsome Vintage British 1930s Oak Twin Pedestal Desk
Having enjoyed a commercial past in Cheshire, this desk comes with a working lock and key for the middle drawers and a footrest.
It’s a traditional combination of long middle centre drawer with 2 handles with a flight of 3 drawers on the left and two to the right with the bottom one being deeper for files. The 2 pull out typing slides are in situ which are always useful to pop that cupper onto.
The desk sits in good vintage order, neat and tidy with good historic knocks and bumps. We love the classic rounded deco era original handles to the drawers - which are working well. There are the usual ink stains to the inside of some of the drawers but nothing fresh. The top does have marks but nothing really off putting. We have cleaned the desk, waxed the drawer runners and given the frame a light wax over to give it a decent sheen. It smells fine. This one does break down into 4 pieces for ease of placement and moving – it’s a five minute job to put back together once in situ.
A sensible size, good shape - not too big and not too small. Looking for a vintage desk with a bit of real history then it’s worth a serious look.
