British Colonial Teakwood Roll Top Desk

Late 19th century

A beautiful British colonial S-curve roll top desk in teakwood. It has a rectangular moulded top with a decorative gallery above the roll down top that covers the desk area and locks the drawers. The cover is made of a series of slats that smoothly roll along a S-frame in a sloping curve from the top of the desk to the desktop. The top opens to reveal a fitted interior with many compartments. The piece stands on twin pedestals with two faux drawers each (looks like 4 drawers). Above the pedestals an additional pull out shelve. All sides and the back are paneled and each pedestal stands on a solid base.

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. The Burma teak wood that this piece has been made of has a warm color and an attractive, straight grain.
