A handsome Large Mahogany Pedestal Desk.  George VI.  Very high quality. Originally retailed by Hampton & Sons of Kensington London* (see below for their biography). Rarely found in this size. It is fully panelled on all sides (rear and inside/outside of each pedestal). Eight working drawers - the bottom right hand drawer being a double height ledger drawer.   Each drawer with original brass handles and locks. Hand cut dovetail joints to the drawers.  Wheeled castors for ease of movement.   Beautiful black leather writing surface. Excellent size, colour and proportions - this desk has an especially large kneehole and excellent working height.  Panelled sides makes this a particularly handsome desk from all angles - it can be sat in the middle of a room or against a wall.

*  Hampton & Sons of Kensington High Street,  London.  Antique and modern furniture dealers, furnishers and upholsterers. Founded in 1830 and trading at this address from 1940 to 1960.  Commissions included inter alia the furnishing of the Royal Yacht Britannia for Her Majesty the Queen, the liners Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and the palaces of the Nizam of Hyderabad and the Maharajah of Kashmir.
