A superb Antique Victorian Mahogany Pedestal Desk stamped with the mark of the well known cabinet maker and retailer; M S & T Willson, 68 Long Acre, London (*See Below).  This antique mahogany pedestal desk can be dated to the late 1800's and is of excellent quality and proportions.  A three piece pedestal desk, it comes with original brass handles, wheeled castors and working brass locks with key.  The moulded top has a very old (possibly original) leather inset.  This dark mottled green leather has been restored and re-waxed to give it many further years of service without destroying its unique patina.  With a plain polished back and sides and substantial plinths this is an excellent original desk suitable for home or office use.
