18th Century Mahogany Kneehole Desk

A superior 18th Century Mahogany kneehole Desk of the most glorious colour and patina, with highly figured matched veneers. The top drawer beaded to match the lines of the ones below and give the impression of three separate drawers. The bead is continued around the edge of the kneehole, to the base the feet are original and the base mould is carved to run smoothly around the corner towards the door. The veneers have been carefully chosen and the grain runs vertically rather than horizontally as is the norm at this period. There is a working key for the top drawer and door.
The original drawer linings are wonderfully clean and made in oak.
Circa 1760
