An exceptional quality medium size mahogany knee-hole desk. English, Victorian period circa 1870. Not stamped but almost certainly made by Gillows of Lancaster. Nine deep drawers ( center drawer locking with key ). Beneath, a large file cupboard with shelf. Door locking with key. The center drawer contains an adjustable folding reading slope with storage beneath, a feature of genuine Gillow desks. With massive legroom this is perfect for modern use with a Laptop Computer, see photos. The two writing surfaces are now fitted with new gilded black hide leather. The back is left plain timber & we believe that this desk was originally constructed to sit beneath a window to afford natural light. All restored,p re french polished & offered in full showroom condition.
