A very rare find, these desks pop up from time to time as single sided desks, Ive never seen a genuine twin pedestal designed for two to use. One side has nine drawers, the other has the three drawers along the top and two large cupboards, this is a three-piece desk so I assume you can flip one pedestal around and have 6 drawers and 1 cupboard each side. The desk is over 100 years old and the timber has a lovely period patina. It is based on early Jacobean 17th century style carvings. The desk has four brass castors in both pedestals, so it is very easy to move around with Hobbs & Co London stamped locks.It is absolute quality and the only one of its type I have ever seen, certainly a custom commission. We have waxed cleaned and polished it from top to bottom, please view the pictures very carefully as they paint an accurate picture of the condition. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
