STOCK NOTES: ENGLISH ANTIQUE WRITING DESKS

Description:  Antique Writing Desks come in many unique shapes and sizes, from small  Davenport Desks, to larger Dickens Desks, to desks with superstructure and many individual fittings and compartments.  This term can also include bureaux, kneehole desks and roll-top and cylinder desks  - however Antiquedesks.net only rarely stocks these latter items and then only exceptional examples.

Sizes:  Typically our Writing Desks are of smaller sizes and are of one piece construction - as such they may range in width from 20" (50cm) up to 48" or 60" (122cm to 153cm). 

Woods: Mahogany, Oak and Walnut.  Occasionally, high quality desks are found in Burr Walnut, Satinwood and Rosewood.  They can often be decorated, painted or inlaid with more exotic woods

Ages:  Good examples of fine English Desks can be found dating from the early part of the 19thC (early 1800's) (Georgian, William IV, Regency), through the Victorian period and into the early years of the 20thC (Edwardian, George V and George VI)

Prices:  Our prices for good quality fully restored English Antique Writing Desks start at around 1,000 and go up to 5,000, or more, for a high quality desk of excellent provenance.
