Superb Marquetry Desk
1907/18: A spectacular quality late Victorian Sheraton Revival ROLL-TOP DESK in fine original condition. Primarily veneered in "plum pudding" mahogany this impressive desk is profusely marquetry inlaid with emblems; flowers and scrolls within figured satinwood borders. The top, with its original brass gallery, rolls back to reveal the well fitted interior with three small drawers and 6 pigeonholes, whilst the blind-tooled leather writing surface slides forward. To the frieze are two oak-lined drawers, and it is raised on marquetry inlaid tapering legs with original castors. Glorious colour and patina ~ a most impressive piece of furniture.
