ANTIQUE VICTORIAN PEDESTAL DESK by
M S & T WILLSON
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.
