Genuine Antique Desks – WANTED ‘DEAD or ALIVE’

Monday, May 7th, 2012

We seek to purchase genuine antique flat top desks in almost any condition. We are only interested in genuine Victorian or older desks with a flat top  &  constructed prior to 1900.  Originality is much more important to us than condition as we always fully restore & refurbish prior to resale in our showroom.   The ideal size is around 5ft x 3ft or smaller & we are not interested in any later 20th Cent. reproductions.

If you have a genuine antique desk that you wish to sell &  think would interest us please send a few clear photographs and details , size, damage  etc. to us by email at   taraantiques@eircom.net  and we will make early contact with you.
