British Colonial Teakwood Roll Top DeskLate 19th century
An impressive Anglo-Indian or British colonial S-curve roll top desk in teakwood. It has a rectangular moulded top 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 and small drawers. It features a large working area that can slide out. The piece stands on twin pedestals with three drawers each. The drawers are flanked by nicely carved pilasters. Above the pedestals an additional pull out shelve. All sides and the back are panelled and each pedestal stands on a solid base. For ease of transport the top can be separated from the pedestals, as can the modesty panel.
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.
