Anglo-Indian Mahogany DeskMid 19th century
An impressive British colonial mahogany desk with a large overhanging C-shaped, beautifully figured top made of one piece of wood. The deep frieze houses three drawers with brass handles. The top is raised on two curving arc supports that rest on a solid base and are connected by a turned cross stretcher. The desk is embellished with finely carved floral motifs. A beautiful and truly unique piece.
The desk is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory by using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The mahogany has a rich warm shade with a striking grain.
