A superb Antique Mahogany Dickens Writing Desk. The Dickens style of Writing Desk became popular in Victorian England in the third quarter of the nineteenth century. This example of a genuine Antique Mahogany Dickens Writing Desk has the characteristic features of twin pedestals, supporting a top with a moulded edge and three separate gold tooled green leather inset writing surfaces.   Surprisingly practical - a laptop can fit easily on (and inside) the central working surface - this desk could feature in a home office, study, hallway or sitting room and offers a wealth of useful storage space.

Once owned and used by a cleric, this interesting and highly original Dickens Writing Desk has small stationery compartments and drawers which have been individually hand labelled 'cuttings, pulpit notes, sermons, printed notes, manuscript notes, science, bible lessons (old testament) and bible readings'. These have been left on the desk, as part of its character and charm, but they could be easily removed if desired.
