Charming Victorian Estate Office Desk Table C1870
Wonderfully worn and a little tatty around the edges. This one came from a farming estate in Derbyshire and was probably handed down to the estate office from the main house when a newer one arrived and over time has aged and altered in purpose – charming all the same.
It’s a stout looking fellow with those bulbous purposeful legs and two real drawers and two false ones on the opposite side. The leather top has long gone and was continued to be used with the top “naked” in the estate office. It’s a great size for a desk or table...
Workshop report – This one has done the rounds from the posh house to the estate office. Its sitting strong with two of the legs having terrier nibbles around the lower parts and a similar nibble to one of the edges at the top – old and not ugly. The edges to the top are worn and the top has gaps but again not ugly and worn in rather than fresh. The drawers are working fine with two of the knobs having loss. Smells fine.
A Victorian desk with bags of character and plenty of life left in it.
