Good Vintage Industrial Art Metal Twin Pedestal Desk
What a cracker from Art Metal and thank God it’s not been stripped and polished.
Art Metal were good at desks. This one dates to around the early 1950s with those cool looking slim line drawer handles and slicker form and base, it certainly pushes the early models with legs, practical pull handles and a squarer form to the back of the queue. This was Art Metal eager to be cool – and let’s face it, it works!
Workshop report – Not easy to find in its original un-messed with condition, however this one is. The original grey paintwork is marked where it should be as is the base - no rusting. The streamline handles are in situ and the drawers are pulling well with the deeper file drawer having its original files stay and middle drawer having welted compartments for keys and the like. The black top is age marked but no cracks or splits. The typing slides are in situ and working well. A good unspoilt desk.
A damn good looking vintage steel desk from one of the best makers… remember Art Metal only did weighty.
