LATE 19TH / EARLY 20TH CENTURY VICTORIAN QUARTERSAWN OAK S CURVE ROLL TOP OFFICE DESK W/ WRITING TABS
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
We're excited to offer for sale this wonderful Victorian tiger oak S-curve roll top office desk. This is a very high quality and well made desk. We handle a few dozen a year and only choose to offer these when they're clean, unaltered, and the tambours work effortlessly. We couldn't find a shop mark on this but looking at the select wood stock used, the sophisticated layout & interior, and the interior drawer locking lever mechanism we have no doubt this came from one of the more coveted makers possibly Derby / Globe / American Standard. The interior lever locking mechanism will hold all other drawers in place when the center drawer is locked. This didn't come to us with a key but if you have exceptional security needs most locksmiths can make this key for <$10. This desk comes apart in sections making it much more practical to move around than standard executive desks. The left bank has a writing tab with 4 standard drawers. The right bank has a writing tab with 2 standard drawers over 1 double drawer. This desk measures 50" wide x 31" deep x 50" tall. The height of the writing surface is 31" & the knee hole is 20 1/2" wide.
