An attractive piece of library furniture; this breakfront kneehole desk is constructed in beautiful walnut with extensive burr veneers as a single piece with elegantly curved edges and attractive fielded panels. The top surface has an indented and bead edged central work area making this desk unusual.
The front elevation boasts a left and right cupboard with fielded panels, brass hinges and ball catch fittings each opening to reveal a lift out shelf.
Above each cupboard is a beaded divider supporting a drawer with another above the kneehole section with its fielded back panel.
The whole desk is raised upon a bracket foot support and boasts the retention of its attractive ornate brass handles.
This desk has obviously been a treasured piece surviving the years in remarkably good condition (please see the photographs) with minor veneer lifting; overall a lovely piece of late Victorian furniture.
