$ 4,200
  • Description
    Dimensions: 37-¼”H x 42-½”W x 21-¼”D

    This French 19th century solid walnut desk has many interesting features. The slant front folds down to reveal a writing surface and many small compartments. There are two small drawers at the top sitting over two larger drawers all made of oak. There are secret compartments on either side of the desk. When the writing surface is open, it can be pulled open to reveal a storage area/drawer. When you close the desk you can see the front of the faux drawer which actually is a part of the writing surface when extended. Below this is a pair of doors which conceals a storage area and one stationary shelf. It is framed on either side by columns with brass bands at the top and bottom. Square feet support the columns and the desk. There are three keys – one for the top, one for the faux drawer, one for the doors. The height of the writing surface is 29-⅛”. The depth of the writing surface when open is 33-⅛”.
