Anglo-Indian Teakwood Davenport Desk

Mid 19th century

$3,000

A British colonial Davenport desk in teakwood with nice contrasting details. It has the original wooden gallery above a writing slope that opens to reveal storage space. On the flat top a gallery with two small drawers with brass ring handles. The side of the Davenport has four drawers, each with recessed brass handles, the freestanding back with matching mouldings.  It stands on four bracket feet.

The desk owes its name to a captain Davenport, who was the first to commission this particular design from Gillows of London near the end of the 18th century.

The desk is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing.
